Route Service Alerts

Save time and avoid delays. Subscribe to receive up-to-the-minute information about service interruptions, changes and detours that may affect your trip. All subscriptions are free and you can unsubscribe at any time.

If you subscribe on your phone, you can only receive text alerts for your route. All you need to do is text your route number to 713713 and you'll automatically be subscribed to receive a text whenever there's a service alert on that route.

For example, if you'd like to subscribe for alerts about the 82 Westheimer route, all you need to do is text the number 82 to 713713.

For subscriptions to METRORail, METRORapid or METRO curb2curb, find your route number here.

There are two ways you can subscribe online. Both methods allow you to subscribe with your phone number (to receive text alerts), email address (to receive email alerts) or both:

  1. On each individual route page, you can click the "Subscribe to Receive Alerts" link. That gives you the option to subscribe for alerts to that specific route. Individual route pages are accessible from the "Routes and Schedules" tab of the website home page.
  2. If you'd prefer, you can sign up for multiple routes simultaneously here.
