CARTS Twitter Messages
CARTS & Use of Twitter
CARTS is now offering clients the ability to receive notification of transportation service disruptions through the use of Twitter. These notifications will be in the form of "tweets," short text messages, sent to a mobile phone capable of receiving text messages. CARTS intentions are to use this service to send messages of high importance and, where the need is to notify as many clients as possible, as soon as possible. Sudden inclement weather conditions, unplanned closures of roads or bridges and equipment failures are examples of situations where CARTS might use this new communication tool.
The use of Twitter is just another method of notifying the public regarding disruptions in our service schedules. Other means of notification will still include local television stations, voice messages on the CARTS main phone number of 252-636-4917, notices on the Craven County website and notices on the CARTS main web page.
