GRTC riders now have access to a free Royale subscription, which unlocks additional features, GRTC branding, new customization options, and complete access to the app across the more than 300 cities supported worldwide.
GRTC joins systems across the country in gifting Royale to all its riders, with more agencies planning announcements in the coming months.
“GRTC is excited to announce the launch of Transit Royale,” said GRTC CEO Sheryl Adams. “This makes taking transit a more predictable and reliable experience, and is an important step as continue to modernize and expand the system to reach new places and serve more people.”
What Riders Can Expect in the App
As the update rolls out over the next week, riders will receive a message in the app informing them that GRTC is upgrading them to Transit Royale, and they will immediately be able to access the subscription’s additional features.
With Royale, riders have access to power features such as customizable themes, personalized emojis that allow riders to become celebrities on their local bus line, and leaderboards for users competing to help the most riders with Transit’s GO crowdsourcing feature.
