Greenlink has partnered with Google Maps to make using public transportation in Greenville even more convenient. Riders can now utilize Google Transit, a popular web-based application that uses data provided by Greenlink, to plan their trips using their smartphone, tablet or desktop. The app allows riders to customize their routes, view interactive maps and get walking directions to the nearest bus stop and to their destination once they leave the bus. When riders enter their starting location and ending destination, Google Transit provides step-by-step directions and information, including:
• Closest bus stop and departure times
• Route names and numbers
• Transfer locations
• Trip fare
• How long the trip will take
• Cost of traveling the same route by personal vehicle
Google Transit is available online and via a mobile app. A Google Transit widget is available on the Greenlink website at www.ridegreenlink.com.
