Get real time bus schedules on the go with Teletext. This service is offered at no cost but standard message/data rates may apply.
Starting March 14, Teletext requires a Stop number and Route number with each schedule request. Some of our stops have multiple routes and that returns a confusing array of information that can exceeed the limited character count of texting. Here's how you can request your Route arrival times:
Here are two ways to use Teletext:
Get current schedule times for a route
- Text the stop number, followed by a space and your route number to 74000. You are able to request up to two routes per request (if the bus stop is serviced by multiple routes), just leave a space between the two routes when texting your stop and route numbers.
Get future scheduled times for a route
- Text your stop number, followed by #, your route number, @ and the time you want to catch the bus (24 hour format) to 74000
