ValleyRide: What’s Happening

Road construction, planned events, and holidays can result in service changes, temporary route detours or relocation of bus stops. Whenever possible, we will post both long-term and short-term service changes on the RIDER ALERTS INFORMATION PAGE

Bus locator portal available for public use


Valley Regional Transit (VRT) has partnered with intelligent transportation system provider Routematch Software to create an online bus locator portal that shows where a ValleyRide bus is currently located. The portal allows riders to quickly and conveniently view where buses are in real time on any given route through an interactive map. This real time information is instantaneously pulled from tablet devices that capture GPS information from buses on the 26 ValleyRide bus routes. In the event that a bus stops transmitting its location data or is not equipped with GPS, it will not appear on this website, even though it is in service. In cases when there is no bus locator information, you can call RideLine customer service at 345-RIDE (7433). You can access the portal by clicking on the map above or by entering in your web browser.
