The Inside Track – List of Features

Nobody is closer to the commuters than Clever Commute. Since 2006, we’ve been working to help make your commute as stress-free as it can be. We are proud to announce a suite of amazing value-added services which we call The Inside Track.
It fully leverages our knowledge of your trip…our detailed database which chronicles all major issues….and our close working relationship with you…the media…and the transit providers,
Please read carefully. Not all features are available for all transit providers…and a few are coming out of beta. But with that said: we will continue to find new and innovative ways to make your commute better!
Remember: Our basic service will remain free for commuters. It continues to have several key limitations which are addressed in our premium product. Our basic service gives you these features (only):alerts from your fellow commuters…on one commuter line…delivered as e-mail.
