Outbound Messaging

Messaging management that delivers customized information to your customers

Centralized management tool that delivers information to your customers through multiple communication channels

Messages give proactive notification of trip reminders, trip change notices, next bus arrival/departure notifications, emergency notifications, and agency bulletins. They can be sent automatically to all customers, or only to those who subscribe or volunteer to receive them. These notifications not only increase customer satisfaction, they are an effective way to reduce the operational costs associated with no-shows and late pick-ups.
