Telecom industry carriers have begun phasing out the use of short codes that many businesses use to send information to their customers via text message.
YARTS currently uses the short code 77453 to enroll passengers in its text alert system. Our telecom carrier has informed us that we will no longer be able to use this short code after July 31, 2019.
Due to this change, YARTS will be switching its text alert service number to the following toll-free number: (877) 559-2787
This change is effective immediately.
Passengers who have previously enrolled in text alerts do not need to re-enroll; they will continue to receive the alerts from the new toll-free number.
Passengers who wish to enroll in text alerts can do so by texting YARTS20182 to (877) 559-2787.
