Greenlink offers 11 fixed routes to destinations all across Greenville County. All
Greenlink buses are wheelchair accessible, and each Greenlink bus is equipped with
a bike rack to make commuting easier for bike riders. The Greenlink system also
features GAP, an ADA paratransit service provided for individuals who,
because of their disability, are unable to use Greenlink's fixed route bus service.
Greenlink Bus Locator
Greenlink has launched a new automated bus locator service that allows passengers to track the real-time whereabouts of the system’s 14 fixed route buses either online or via a downloadable app called Route Shout.
Currently, passengers can choose one of two methods to find the real-time locations and expected arrival times of the buses:
- Online: View the Bus Locator map, choose the route you want to view and click on the bus to see its exact location, travel speed and estimated arrival time.
- Smart Phone App: Download for the Route Shout app on your iPhone or iPad via the iTunes Store. Download on your Android device via the Google Play Store. Once installed, select Greenlink Transit from the list of South Carolina transit agencies.

Litter Control Campaign Targets Cigarette Butts
Keep Greenville County Beautiful (KGCB) and Greenlink are taking action to help address America’s and Greenville County’s number one litter issue- improperly discarded cigarette butts. According to Keep America Beautiful, Inc., tobacco products (including cigarette butts) are the most-littered item in America, representing nearly 38% of all items. Research also shows that individuals who would never litter items such as beverage cans or paper packaging may not consider tossing cigarette butts on the ground "littering."
KGCB secured grant funding to address this important issue, and through the Don’t Flick It campaign, KGCB and Greenlink have purchased ash receptacles and placed them at bus shelters in all areas of the city and county. The campaign also features prominent advertisements on and in Greenlink vehicles and at bus shelters to raise awareness of the issue and discourage littering across the county.
Free Wi-Fi Service
Greenlink has added complimentary Wi-Fi service to all of its fixed route buses and shuttles, as well as at the Greenlink Transit Center at 100 West McBee Avenue in downtown Greenville.

Operated by Upstate Forever and funded in part by a JARC grant from Greenlink, Greenville B-cycle launched in April and is getting off to a great start!
