We present an archival search for transient gravitational-wave bursts in coincidence with 27 single-pulsetriggers from Green Bank Telescope pulsar surveys, using the LIGO, Virgo, and GEO interferometernetwork.We also discuss a check for gravitational-wave signals in coincidence with Parkes fast radio burstsusing similar methods. Data analyzed in these searches were collected between 2007 and 2013. Possiblesources of emission of both short-duration radio signals and transient gravitational-wave emission includestarquakes on neutron stars, binary coalescence of neutron stars, and cosmic string cusps. While no evidencefor gravitational-wave emission in coincidence with these radio transients was found, the current analysisserves as a prototype for similar future searches using more sensitive second-generation interferometers.
