What to Expect When Expecting… Inclement Weather

It’s been a couple of weeks since the Triangle was hit with icy road conditions and, in turn, lots of delays. Our team and those working for the different transit systems in the area worked together to make sure all inclement weather information got you to as quickly and efficiently as possible.

That being said we’re always on the hunt for new ways to improve how we communicate with our riders. Ergo, we’d like to introduce our guide to…

What to Expect When You’re Expecting… Inclement Weather

Whenever our area is experiencing inclement weather our team will be working to keep you informed as quickly as we can. As soon as we have information we will be updating you through these three ways:

1. Our Website

Anytime we have delays or cancelled services due to inclement weather you will see these two banners on our home page. Just click on them to go directly to detailed information about delays and service cancellations.

2. Email Blasts

If you ride any of the systems in the triangle then you should already be signed up for rider alerts. If you aren’t, DO IT NOW! Go to http://www.gotriangle.org/go-info/news-alerts/ and sign up for alerts to go straight to your inbox. Click the link that says “Email” and then choose which alerts you’d like to receive. Make sure to scroll to the bottom to see a full list of systems. (Bonus: If you ride Triangle Transit you can subscribe to specific routes and get information tailored specifically for them.)

3. Twitter and Facebook

We work hard here at GoTriangle to make sure we’re as helpful as possible. That’s where our social media plays a huge part. Please get in touch with us and follow our pages! In addition to emails and website updates, we’ll be posting on Twitter and Facebook during inclement weather to keep you in the loop. If you have questions or concerns, just say hello and we’ll do all we can to help!

As always, thanks for riding with us!
