Snow updates on Youtube

Due to all the snow, our media relations department is trying something new today — updates via Youtube for the media.

Check out our latest second update clip above (here’s the first clip we did too), and you can follow TransLinkInfo on Youtube for more updates. It might seem kind of odd to have the updates read to you, but the clips help give media outlets audio to use if necessary. Anyway, I just thought you would like to hear them too, so you can keep on top of the situation. You can also check out our Customer Alerts page for updates.

(Twitter fans: we are working on doing Twitter updates and will launch that service early next year. Sorry it can’t be sooner! We are keenly aware you want Twitter updates, as our Twitter poll showed, so now we are just working out processes for reporting the info and other such things before we can start. Really, we want to put out reliable updates, so that’s what’s guiding us here.)

    I noticed that there is a yellow bar on my IPhone which says “Watch Here for Transit Updates!” Will you be updating this portion of your IPhone application to show the same type of alerts that appear on the Translink customer alerts webpage?

    You know, I just checked on that, and as far as I’m aware of, that yellow strip on the iPhone is supposed to be broadcasting all our updates from this morning. I’ll double check that with the web peepz though.

    So, from all accounts it should be working. But keep letting me know if you don’t see the updates in the yellow strip!
