What is Mobile GR?

Mobile GR is a City of Grand Rapids department that works to provide safe, reliable, affordable, and diverse transportation options to support the City's economic and quality of life goals. Mobile GR operates city-owned parking systems and maintains many aspects of transportation and safety infrastructure within the City of Grand Rapids and Kent County.

Social justice, economic development, and transportation depend on one another's success. We work together to improve the community's quality of life by getting more people to use active transportation. Mobile GR helps expand people's mobility choices by making it easier to take transit, walk, bike, carpool, or drive alone.
