This is the beauty of the CleverCommute crowdsourced model.
Our riders announced this morning’s problems forty minutes earlier than the transit provider did.
|Here we are, first:|
And then along comes NJ Transit
As users of our Premium service, know, Clever Commute can be much more than a place for crowdsourced info. (ref: The five data sources)
And, as commuters know, the transit providers continue to try to share timely info directly with their commuters.
Clever Commute can bring both of these together in the app.
For years, "official info" was a Premium feature. During the covid crisis, we will make this content available to all users,
Here's an example:
|Clever Commute is not affiliated with any transit agency.|
We provide this info as a courtesy to our community.
|Date/Timing||You Will Receive|
|Prior to the first business day of the calendar month/week||a full refund|
|After the start of the month/week|
if the refund is requested immediately following the purchase
|a full refund|
|All other||the cost of two one-way tickets will be deducted from the refund amount for each business day you had the pass|
|This page explains one or more of the dozens of amazing features found in Clever Commute Premium.|
At the start of your commute, this feature sends an alert (per your notification options) to let you if your provider says things are On or Close (transit lingo for "no reported problems") .
This matches what you see at Service Status at your (train) provider's website. E.g., http://mta.info or www.njtransit.com
|Of course, if the official info does not match what you see, your fellow commuters would appreciate it if you'd share the real status with them.|
|You're In Control:|
Turn this feature on/off via Settings => Comms and Config => Alerts/Bots/Probes
More info about controlling these notifications: Blog post
