Metrobus Launches Text and Email Alert System

Metrobus Launches Text and Email Alert System: Figure 1

Metro has released an email and text alert system for Metrobus, so riders can be notified why they have been waiting half an hour for a bus to show up, The Washington Post reports.

From the Post:

Metrobus users can sign up online to get service information on a maximum of four lines. It can be sent to their mobile devices, pagers or desktop computers. The alert system will operate between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m weekdays.

Metrorail already has an alert system like this in place, but our favorite aspect of the new system is that it can be sent to a pager (anyone still using those awesome instruments?). To sign up for the new service, click here.

    Will these alerts also be available for the streetcars if/when they arrive? I would wager hipsters don't like to be left in the lurch...even when, what they're waiting for is new, red & shiny.... 😉
