Green Bay Metro made shifts with GBM On Demand for after hours

Attention Green Bay Residents! The Green Bay Metro Transit has made shifts to their operating hours during the nighttime with GBM on Demand shared transit solution. Similar to the concept of shared “Uber/Lyft” services, it provides a sustainable way to connect multiple riders going in the same direction.

Do you know that free bus passes are available for all UWGB students at the University Ticketing & Information Center (UTIC) on the 2nd floor of the University Union by presenting your student ID?

How does it work?

Using the new micro transit service can be as easy as three simple steps:

First, download the “GBM on Demand” mobile app at the App Store or the Google Play Store and create an account.

Secondly, select the pick-up location and your destination either by setting the pin on the map or simply typing it in.

[Please be mindful that during the normal bus hours, the on-demand micro-transit can only get you from the zones to the corresponding transfer point of the fixed bus route system. However, once it is past the fixed bus route hours, you can travel across any zone. Anywhere across any zone is your oyster.]

Finally, click the “Book this ride” button to confirm your trip. For the convenience of the passengers, there is a variety of payment methods including cash, credit card, and the GBM bus pass. Free rides on referral are also available for the first two rides.

And there you go! Wait for an ETA of 16 minutes and you can enjoy your ride beyond fixed operating hours and routes.

For further assistance or support, please call GBM Mobility Coordinator, Andrea Vlach, at 920-448-3450.
