OmniRide now has its own mobile app to provide passengers with real-time bus arrival information and updates. The OmniRide app, which was developed by Ride Systems, is free and can be found by searching for OmniRide in your mobile device’s app store.
The app has a bus tracker that enables riders to see a map with an icon showing the exact location of their bus and predicting the actual arrival time of the bus at all but the first bus stop along the route. This fall the app will be updated so that all OmniRide buses – including those that are not yet picking up passengers – will be tracked.
Real-time OmniRide bus information also is available on Google Transit. Use Google Transit to see how you can take a FREE OmniRide shuttle to catch a VRE train.
