You'd have to look it up on your own but I'd say a Greyhound bus to Detroit.

Then you'd probably have to transfer to another Greyhound bus from Detroit to Grand Rapids.

I imagine this would be cheapest but not fastest.

Welcome to TripAdvisor, WithoutDirection;

Fastest would be to drive the 361 miles / 581 km, yourself.

Greyhound would most likely be the cheapest, but the trip ranges from 10.5 hours to more than 16 hours in duration, one way.

Greyhound is the only way I know of. The train yeah but bus would be better, IMO and I'm not sure how often the train goes between Detroit and GR.

To take the train, the OP would need to...

- travel on VIA Rail to Windsor, approx. 4 hours in duration

www.VIARail.ca

-make their own way across the border to the Detroit Amtrak station

- board a train to Chicago.

- once in Chicago, they would need to back-track to Grand Rapids.

The Amtrak trip alone is more that 16 hours in duration.
