Real-time Travel Information

RIPTA is always working to use technology to benefit our customers.  We use real-time travel information to track our buses and since making that data available developers, many have been busy building apps that make riding RIPTA easier.  You can use our website and click on the “Where’s My Bus?” tab to track your ride in real time.  Or, you can try some of the apps listed below.

You can also find applications by searching “RIPTA” in your phone’s app store.
