FAQ

My phone doesn't include a data plan. Isn't checking the internet on my phone expensive?
Actually, it's not. We designed the Mobile Web site so that it would be inexpensive to access, even if you don't have a data plan. The site relies mainly on text to display bus location and destination and doesn't have any complex graphics to load, meaning you won't use many kilobytes to access the real-time location of your bus. Check with your operator to determine the rates that apply to your phone and plan.
What if I don't have a smartphone?
Most mobile phones on the market now have internet-capability even if you don't have a smartphone. You can check for the internet on your phone by looking for a web browser with one of the following labels (depending on your phone and carrier): net, web, browser, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer, MediaNET (on AT&T Wireless), Power Vision (on Sprint), or Get It Now > News & Info (on Verizon Wireless).
Do you offer a text messaging option?
We don't offer SMS at this location.
