Grand Rapids Autonomous Vehicle Initiative #AVGR
The Grand Rapids Autonomous Vehicle Initiative (AVGR) brings four electric shuttles to downtown streets this summer for a year pilot. A wheelchair accessible vehicle is also available on demand. The six-seat shuttles are here through January 2021. The shuttles are self-driving. However, they’ll always have an attendant when they’re on our streets.

Pay Station Replacement and Expansion
We continue to replace existing parking meters with pay stations in Grand Rapids. We began work in 2017 and expect to be complete by 2019.
We've also expanding our service area. Neighborhood lots and certain business districts have converted to paid parking. Last year, we installed pay stations in seven key districts.
