Founded in 1914, Greyhound Lines, Inc. is the largest provider of intercity bus transportation, serving more than 3,800 destinations across North America. It has nearly 18 million passengers each year in the United States and Canada. And they use ZipCodeAPI. The Greyhound running dog is one of the most-recognized brands in the world.
Greyhound needed an easy, reliable and fast way for customers to find the nearest bus stop. Greyhound decided to use ZipCodeAPI in 2016 to power Find a Bus Stop. They’ve been using it ever since without a detour along the way. Read more about using ZipCodeAPI to find the distance between zip codes.
There are many other companies and organizations using ZipCodeAPI that use other capabilities of ZipCodeAPI.

ZipCodeAPI can also be used to simplify online address forms. RunSignUp has been using ZipCodeAPI since the beginning. Users simply enter their zip code and ZipCodeAPI retrieves the city and state.
