We’ve given our Transit Alerts an update, making it easier for our customers keep informed of changes or disruptions to their routes!
There’s a new look with improved navigation and a responsive design (that means it looks the same on both mobile and desktop devices). There’s now an option to toggle between showing alerts only for today or all alerts.
We’ve also done extensive work behind the scenes.
As a result of an improved alerts service, customers can expect to see more clear and timely alerts across our channels.
A new beta General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) Realtime feed is now available for developers.
GTFS Realtime is a feed specification that allows public transportation agencies to provide realtime updates about their fleet to application developers.
The new feed now includes service-alert information, as well as enhancements to vehicle position and trip update information.
Best part is — we’re just getting started! More enhancements are on the way as part our Customer Messaging Project to improve how we communicate service alerts to our customers.
Stay informed about changes or disruptions to your route by subscribing to receive transit alerts via text SMS or email, at alerts.translink.ca.
