Meet GRT's official mascot, Ryder

Back in February of 2022, a rider on a passing bus spotted a small stuffed bunny sitting in a bus shelter.

We rescued him and tried to find his owner, but no one ever came forward. Our community named him Ryder, and we adopted him as our unofficial mascot. He made a home at GRT, exploring the bus garages, hanging out with staff and dressing up for the seasons.

And then he snuck onto a bus to ride through the bus wash, and this happened:

Now Ryder is our official mascot! He can explore our transit system, teach people how to use transit safely, and join community events. And when he wants to play hide and seek, he just rides through the bus wash and he's small again!
