- Strategic, proactive guidance regarding anything which impacts the commute e.g., holiday get-away days, schedule changes, events/disruptions at/near the terminals
- Message delivery via email, Twitter, text message or straight to the commuter’s mobile device
- User Profile feature for filtering of alerts by time-of-day and day-of-week – including a snooze button.
