Important Notice Regarding our Texting Services

Effective July 28th, 2016, we are transitioning to a new short code. During the transition period, our current short code, 393939, will not function with the keyword "routes". This means, if you text "routes" to 393939 after July 27th, 2016, you will not receive a response. Our other keywords (metrobus, reload, mcard) will continue to work normally.

We have setup a temporary long code, (647) 361-1570, that can be used during the transition period instead of using 393939. All of our key words, including ROUTES, can be texted to this temporary long code to obtain information through our texting service. During the transition period, responses from our temporary long code may be a little slower than usual. Message & data rates may apply.

We will provide an update about our new short code once the transition has been completed.
