Great transit system
Holland, MI, has a great small urban public transit system known as the "MAX." It has 8 fixed bus routes that all meet at the intermodal Padnos Center hub that serves Amtrak and Indian Trails intercity busways. The Padnos Center is the transfer hub for MAX, and right in the heart of downtown Holland in a well appointed historic train station.
The fixed routes are simple to use as they run hourly, arriving at bus stops at the same time every hour, so the bus system is easy to figure out. They just started a new nighttime route - the Twilight Route - that operates until 10 p.m. This is great for those who want to go out at night, but not necessarily want to drive around town. It's cheap to ride: $1 one way adult fare. Kids half price. Under 5 years and seniors 65 and older are free, too.
During Tulip Time, the MAX has run a special shuttle that you can take to get from one end of downtown to the other. This is great for families with kids in tow, or those who aren't able to do extensive walking. Drivers extremely helpful, and you can ask them if you're on the right bus to get to your destination. Highly recommend taking the bus over trying to drive. They're clean, modern buses with wheelchair accessiblity and bike racks, in case you want to bike and ride around the lakeshore area.

American Trains are...
American Trains are overpriced, noisy, and slow and im really bitter about it. Take a gas guzzling SUV like every other lazy american and negotiate our overcrowed and always under construction roads. And even though we are on the Lake, we have no maritime passenger service. Not since the 1930's i think. Too bad really. I want to take a boat to Chicago once.
Oooh, one of the those scooters would be nice. A bike or rollerblades is nice, but without a car your up a *** creek in a stone canoe without a paddle.
