RTS introduces new text message and email alerts to provide GC customers with most to-to-date info
To make it easier for customers in Genesee County to get the most up-to-date information about RTS news, events, routes, and service and schedule changes, RTS today announced that customers can now sign up to receive this information via text message and email alerts, and our email newsletter.
“The introduction of these text message and email alerts is part of our ongoing effort to make it easier for customers to get the information they need, when they need it,” said Bill Carpenter, CEO of RTS. “With these new communication tools, we can now provide customers with an instant update if we have to implement a detour at the last minute or encounter a delay on a specific route.
"By improving the timeliness and frequency of information that is important to our customers, we are making it easier for them to enjoy the ride.”
Signing up is easy. Customers can fill out a subscription form online or in person, or opt-in via text message.
