TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2011 /CNW/ - GO Transit's successful E-News
notification system is adding another option to keep passengers
instantly informed of service changes. GO riders may now sign up to
receive SMS text messages directly to their mobile device, simply by
subscribing for free at www.gotransit.com/enews.
"We are very excited to offer even more ways to communicate with our
passengers. We've promised to keep our customers in the know, and SMS
messages will reach out to even more of our customer-base", said GO
Transit President Gary McNeil.
E-News messages, either by email or SMS text, include information on
service improvements, new schedules, service status updates, station
updates, and other news of interest to passengers.
Email and SMS alerts are fully customizable, allowing each subscriber to
select their train line, station, or bus route, and the message
distribution can be limited to particular times of day, such as morning
or afternoon peak-periods.
GO Transit has signed up more than 62,000 E-News subscribers since 2005.
With the addition of SMS messaging, alerts will be more accessible to
more passengers, supporting GO's customer-first Passenger Charter and
the importance providing timely, relevant information.
