Ride Systems AppRide Systems AppYou can now track Carthage shuttle services through Ride Systems, a real-time GPS shuttle- and bus-tracking app. The app allows you to live-track the College’s parking lot and Metra shuttles with color-coordinated routes and vehicle icons, so you know where they are and when they will arrive. You can also set notifications on your phone using the app to let you know when the shuttles reach a certain location. 

Ride Systems is available for both iOS and Android. Get it today! After you download the app, search for Carthage and active shuttles will appear on the map.

Carthage Student Government proposed and secured Ride Systems as a way to enrich the student experience.

Nicolas Adamo’ 22, Student Government senator and chairman of the Student Life Enhancement Committee, was instrumental in bringing this new tool to campus. “With this app, students can wait in their dorms or cars instead of standing in the cold and rain wondering when the next shuttle will arrive,” he said. “I am extremely happy that students have this new service at their fingertips, and I am grateful for the help I had in providing it to the Carthage community.” 

Operations will be responsible for the maintenance and service of the app.

See how it works!
