Frequently Asked Questions

  • No. If you want to receive text messages, sign up with your phone number. If you’d prefer email notifications, sign up with your email address. You can use both methods, but the accounts will be separate and you’ll need to manage your notifications separately.
  • Yes. If you want to receive alert notifications as text messages, you can sign up by texting route information to 468311. Simply text CapMetro and the route number you're interested in receiving alerts for. For example, if you text “CapMetro 801” to 468311, you'll be notified whenever there's alert for MetroRapid Route 801.
  • It’s up to you! Setting a password does allow additional security but is not required. If you sign up via text, you won't be asked to provide a password, but you can add one by visiting the sign up page.
  • Click here to manage which notifications you receive. First, select your subscription type (email or text) and then enter your contact info. If you chose a password on your initial setup, enter it when requested.

  • We will continue to post on our social media accounts about events that affect our entire system, but route-specific alerts will not be posted to Twitter after February 2020.
