It’s a fact
Every commuter train that departs from New York City leaves one minute later than scheduled. However, you can’t find the train because the transit providers remove them from the board at the published departure time. Clever Commute gives you the edge two ways.

(1) Track number delivered to you via text message, push notification or e-mail.
You have it handy…even after the scheduled departure time!

(2) See trains after they are removed from the board! (Click on pictures to enlarge)

(1) NJT, LIRR, Metro North
announces the track…
(2) But then
they remove it!
(3) Clever Commute
to the rescue!

We offer the ability to have track numbers sent to you by text message or e-mail (see examples here).

  • You no longer need to plan your entrance to the station just so that you can visit a departureboard
  • You can avoid the hot crowds in the summer
  • You know the track…even it has been taken off the board

You can set this up via the MyTrains feature
