Do the buses on Coastal Highway stop only at designated stops? If so, where is that map? Or can you flag them down if you see the bus coming?

There are specific stops for the bus along Coastal Highway. The stops are every couple of blocks and are well marked with signs similar to the one shown above. You can find a map of the bus stops here and more info about the bus here.

Ocean City is celebrating the New Year with the introduction of the highly anticipated bus locator application.  Debuting on New Year’s Eve, the enhanced service will allow bus patrons to view real-time location of busses with the TransLoc Rider app.

Available for both iOS and Android, users of the app can watch Ocean City buses moving in real time, as well get an accurate arrival prediction of busses to their exact location via the app’s text messaging feature.  Further, the TransLoc Rider app allows users to set favorite routes, get personal alerts and ultimately makes transit more accessible and convenient for patrons.

“We are continuously exploring ways to improve public transportation in Ocean City, making it an easier and more enjoyable experience for our residents and visitors,” commented Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan.  “We know that time is valuable and the TransLoc Rider app gives patrons the ability to know exactly what time the bus will reach them. It’s easy to use and answers the primary question our riders have….where’s the bus?”

To track your bus in real time with the new bus locator, users can download the TransLoc Rider App from the App Store or visit oct.transloc.com.  Patrons can also text the Bus Stop ID number (found at each bus stop) to 414-11.

Hey Sarah, do not attempt to flag down a bus. they will not stop for you, also there are designated areas for the bus. you can look for the bus sign and the bus will pick you up, or there is a little covering waiting area in each area of the bus stops. you can wait in those the bus will stop if they see you sitting there.

You cannot flag a bus down and please don't attempt it.  It would be very dangerous.  Bus stops are clearly marked on Coastal Highway, and are at nearly every block, two at the most.  It's still only $3 per person to ride the bus all day. A real bargain!!
