Progress being made in preparation for expanded Harbor Transit service

Officials say progress is being made in an effort to ramp up service for an expanded Harbor Transit, slated to begin early next year. "Everything is going good,' Harbor Transit Director Tom Manderscheid said Thursday. Grand Haven Township voters on May 3 approved a 0.95-mill transportation tax, which includes 0.45 mill for the Harbor Transit service, to bring the local bus service to the township. The township service will allow Harbor Transit to reach the communities of Grand Haven, Spring Lake Village, Ferrysburg and Grand Haven Township.

Since the approval of the millage, Harbor Transit officials have been working to make the new service a reality. Manderscheid said there is a lot of work going on regarding transferring agreements to the new Harbor Transit Multi-Modal Transportation System from the city.

Along with working on agreements and making sure the service has enough personnel to handle the expanded service, officials have also filled out the governing board by adding an at-large member: Grand Haven Township resident Pete LaMourie.

The transportation authority also includes two members from each of the participating communities of Grand Haven, Ferrysburg, Spring Lake and Grand Haven Township to form a nine-member committee.
