Why we say “Please do not share track numbers”

We know the commute is stressful…and it’s tempting to post (and ask for) track numbers via the free app. But it just doesn’t work for large audiences such as ours.
Why not?
You’d get messages about trains you don’t ride and You’d get lots of duplicate messages

Read on…

Between Hoboken and NY Penn (NJT) or Atlantic, NY Penn, and Hunterspoint (LIRR) ….there are many trains leaving the terminal each night. Therefore, if people started posting track numbers for every train, three things would happen

  1. you would get messages about all trains…all night long
  2. you would get multiple messages about each train
  3. you would get messages about trains at stations you don’t use

It quickly becomes untenable. 

I don’t mean to be sales-y…but we do indeed offer an automated track-number delivery service (text, e-mail or both)…for only the trains you ride.
Remember: Once the track number has been delivered to your phone, you have that info even after it’s been removed from the departure board.
We also have technology which predicts your track number. See it all here: clevercommute.com/premium.
