Green Rider - Eco Friendly Bus, Train, Ferry Real Time Transit Tracker
Green Rider is the transit tracking app you've been waiting for. Real-time information means that you won't have to wait forever in the rain for that late bus or miss it entirely because it was early. Green Rider has alarms that help you get to the bus on time and even wake you up from that nap when your stop is approaching. On-line schedules are updated as soon as the transit agencies publish them, so you won't have to worry about out-of-date information. And don't forget your Carbon Footprint Score, track the positive impact you are making on the environment, and even share with your friends on Facebook and Twitter to get them motivated too.

So no more standing in the rain waiting for that bus that's 20 minutes late, or missing that early bus all together. In addition to real-time information, Green Rider has comprehensive schedules, that are often better than the ones you get from the transit agencies themselves.

Get alarms for your ride
Green Rider features two kinds of ride alarms. Set up a "Begin Alarm" to be notified when the ride you are trying to catch is arriving at your stop of choice. Once you are riding, set up an "End Alarm" that will warn you when your destination is approaching. So feel free to take a nap or read that book. Green Rider has got you covered.
Track your carbon footprint
Green Rider will keep track of the positive impact you are having on the environment by using public transportation. The more you ride, the more carbon emissions you save. As your score gets higher you will see how you are saving. Feel proud about your impact? Well then post your score directly to Facebook or Twitter and impress your friends!
Full on-line schedules
With full schedules of all stops and routes you never have to worry about having out-of-date schedule information. Need to look up times for a new route on the fly? No problem. Our schedules are always up to date and include a convenient map, and are often even more comprehensive than what you can get from the transit agencies themselves.
Note when using End Alarms: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
