GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Rapid plans to hold a pair of job fairs next week to fill openings for full-time and part-time bus operators, tire technicians and transportation supervisors, the public transit service tells us.

The job fairs are scheduled to take place at Rapid Central Station on Tuesday, June 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Tuesday, June 29 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
