The one-liner here is that you have joined a community that gives you the ability to help (and receive help from) your fellow passengers.
All of the â€œalertsâ€ and â€œadvisoriesâ€ will come from YOUâ€¦and are sent directly to your fellow commuters (on your line).
Hereâ€™s more of what you need to prepare for â€œDay 1â€³
- Your should have received a â€œWelcomeâ€ mailâ€¦and the only thing you really need to note is the one e-mail address you need for the train line your ride
(You can always reach CleverCommute staff via the website)
- As thousands of commuters in NY, Boston and elsewhere know, this service is all about people-helping-each-otherâ€¦and the other people on your list are your neighbors. Please make your messages to the group (1) constructive and (2) actionable.
The recent media attention has indeed caused a â€œgrowth spurtâ€ in our membershipâ€¦so there will be some growing pains Iâ€™m sureâ€¦but weâ€™ll get through it together.
- Ask friends and fellow commuters to sign up. Speaking from my own experience, each community can (and should) grow much larger than they are now
- Follow this link to a few bullet points based on our experiences in the NY area. Maybe the Chicago-area dynamics will be reason to tweak theseâ€¦but I think this is a good starting point
Some Chicago commuters have most definitely had rough commutes lately. Soâ€¦
- Please help each other out
- Encourage others to join. I will process any sign-ups that come to us before 11:00 PM tonight (and of course throughout the day tomorrow)
Thanks again to everyone for making it an exciting day.Welcome aboard.
