Clinton Transit’s new mobile app makes it even easier for Clinton County residents to schedule curb- to-curb transportation. The new app, available on the App Store or Google Play by searching for “Clinton Transit,” allows registered users to manage their ride schedules at any time using a smart phone or mobile device.
“We are excited that our riders can now enjoy the convenience that our mobile app provides,” says MaLissa Schutt, Executive Director. “Riders have the option of managing their rides using the app while Clinton Transit’s skilled dispatchers stand ready to assist riders with their scheduling needs as well.”
Riders will need to register to use the app in advance of their first ride by completing the form available at mybluebus.com/sign-up or by calling the dispatch office at 989.224.8127, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It may take up to one business day for new accounts to be reviewed and processed. Riders under the age of 18 will also need to have a parent or guardian submit an Unaccompanied Youth Rider Registration form two weeks prior to their first ride.
For a limited time, new riders can take their first round-trip ride for free upon successful registration; the free-ride credit will be applied to the passenger’s account.
“We’re continually evaluating how we can improve access to transportation within our community,” shares Schutt. “We know that mobility paves the way for a more vibrant and thriving community.”
The new technology roll out comes on the heels of recent announcements that Clinton Transit has added extended weekday hours through 9 p.m. and weekday walk-on rides between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. from select locations, along with Saturday service which began in April 2021. The Blue Bus celebrated its 20th anniversary last year.
Established in 2001, Clinton Transit has been providing curb-to-curb service to meet the needs of all Clinton County residents. Fondly known as the Blue Bus, the on-demand transit system responds to ride requests and provides safe, reliable transportation to all county residents. This creates a more connected, accessible and vibrant Clinton County. For more information on the Blue Bus, visit mybluebus.com.
