Changed your schedules?
If your agency has modified schedules and updated its GTFS: we’re noting the changes automatically. Your schedule changes will be reflected in the app within a few hours, at most.
If your agency is running service at reduced “Saturday/Sunday” frequencies and hasn’t yet updated its GTFS: our team can manually update your schedules. Just let us know.
Get info to riders instantly
When you update your service alerts feed, we relay this info to riders immediately. Users who subscribe to alerts on their favourite lines get a notification instantly.
Transit agencies (even those that aren’t an official Transit Partner) can use our service alerts dashboard to send notifications straight to riders’ phones — at the “system-wide” or “line-by-line” and even the “stop-by-stop” level. Email our team and we’ll set you up right away.
And one more for the road: we’ve now added support for real-time crowding information, so you can let riders know if they’re better off waiting for the next bus.
How riders are helping
People are staying home to limit the spread of the virus. But that means transit agencies are experiencing steep declines in farebox revenue. Which is why they need emergency relief funding.
- In the United States: Congress provided $25B to help public transit. Contact your member of Congress and let them know that more will be needed soon.
- In Canada: The Canadian Urban Transit Association is asking Ottawa for $1.2B to help transit agencies offset lost revenue — and $400M a month, to keep critical services running.
More than 5,000 Transit users have already reached out to their elected officials in support of transit agencies during the crisis.
We all need public transit. And public transit needs our help.
