Do you have a smartphone, or is your current mobile device Web-enabled? If so, check out these new options for accessing the information RTA riders need the most:

RTA rail service Commuter Alerts:

Through Commuter Alerts, you can receive RTA Rail (Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line, and Waterfront Line) service-related information via e-mail and/or text messages. Information will include:

  • service interruptions
  • bus replacement information (if necessary)
  • delays: of 10-15 minutes, 15-20 minutes and more than 20 minutes with a brief explanation of what is happening
  • other unusual occurrences

Notices can be sent to e-mail addresses, cellular phones, and advanced smartphones. Messages are limited to 150 characters to reduce truncation by cellular phones. Sign up here for Commuter Alerts.

NextConnect real-time location:

NextConnect represents the next generation in RTA service communication. Through the use of GPS technology, you can check the location of any vehicle on any route, and obtain predictions of when that vehicle is expected to arrive at a given stop. Subscribed alerts allow a customer to be notified via email when a vehicle is approaching a selected stop, minimizing unnecessary waiting time. To explore NextConnect, visit nextconnect.riderta.com.
