Are you visiting ArtPrize from out of town? Planning to stay at a hotel outside the downtown core and wondering the best way to travel to and from ArtPrize? Our friends at Experience Grand Rapids have you covered with their Hotel Shuttle to ArtPrize.

29 area hotels have opted into this program, back for a second year, offering you a quick and easy option for getting to ArtPrize while leaving your car behind.

Here's How it Works:

  1. Pick up a Shuttle wristband at your hotel
  2. Make your way to the Park & Ride location, within 10 minutes of your hotel
  3. Board the Shuttle

That's it! That's all you have to do. Each Friday through Sunday during ArtPrize Nine, they'll drive you downtown so you don’t have to worry about traffic and parking - dropping you off in the heart of the event at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. Simple. Stress-free. The best way to start your ArtPrize Nine experience. Find more info and participating hotels on Experience Grand Rapids' website.
