GRT's easyGO systems give predicted real-time departure information for buses so riders have a better idea of when their bus will be leaving their stop.
This free, innovative easyGO mobile application is a useful interactive tool for our customers to have instant access to real-time bus information.
The online trip planner gives a step-by-step itinerary of how to get to your destination. In March, 2016 Trip Planner was upgraded. The look and functionality have changed making it easier to plan your trip. Among the updates, Trip Planner now has the ability to show a stop schedule and next bus arrival times and uses Google Maps.
Tips for the new Trip Planner:
To plan a trip go to the left navigation tab and select "Trip Plans"
To view the timetables for a particular route select "Route Schedules"
To view the bus schedule for a particular stop for the entire day, click on "Stop Schedules"
For Example: Ottawa / Westmount
Next Bus Call:
Need information at your fingertips? Use EasyGO to call the next bus. Dial 519-585-7555. You will be prompted to say "next bus" and then enter your four digit stop number. Then sit back and listen to the next bus departure times.
Real-Time Next Bus Text Messaging:
Send a text with your four digit stop number to 57555. Your stop number can be found at the bottom right hand section of the bus stop that you are standing at. Simply put 57555 in the "To" section of the message and put your stop number in the text box portion.
Departure times are in predicted real-time. Scheduled departure times are noted with an asterisk.
This service is supported by approved 3rd party sponsorship advertisements in compliance with Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation. In order to keep costs associated with the text messaging service from being passed on to our customers, GRT implemented an advertising based service, which means ads will now appear with your next bus information. GRT will not be charging for this service, however please note that standard text message rates apply.
If you prefer personal assistance, a Grand River Transit customer service representative can help you plan your trip. Live help is available by calling 519-585-7555 and press #4.

iXpress buses also feature on-board LED displays showing the next stop and the trip destination.
