Attention Lift riders! Winter Park’s transit system will be switching to a new mobile app starting Tuesday, September 4. The current RideHop app will be replaced with a new, vastly improved app called “The Lift Rider”.

The Lift Rider will be the go-to place for all Winter Park transit information. Through the new app, riders will be able to:

  • View all active bus routes
  • Track bus locations in real-time
  • View the next two arrival times at any stop as well as view the entire schedule
  • Favorite your local route and stops
  • Set up custom text notifications for bus arrivals

With these enhanced features, the app will make it easier for residents and visitors to navigate the Lift transit system. The new software also has improved features for Winter Park staff including more thorough reporting to help better understand ridership and plan for the future.

The Lift Rider app can be downloaded for free through the Apple App Store or Google Play starting September 4.

Fall Service Schedule

Also on September 4, the Lift will move to its fall schedule, so buses will be operating on an hourly schedule 7 days a week until November 12 when winter service begins.
