Another TTC story for you this morning… but this one has already available. If you plan on taking the TTC streetcar you can now receive text messages when the next streetcar will arrive at your stop.
There are over 600 stops that are outfitted with a unique stop number. All you have to do is send a text message with that number to 898882 (txtttc) and you’ll get a text back with up to the next 6 arrival times.
The TTC says “There is no cost to customers for this feature. However, standard text messaging rates apply and customers should check with their service provider about their own text messaging rates and plans. To protect against spam, there is a limit of 10 text messages every 12 hours, per cell phone number.”
This service will be coming to buses next year.
