Getting SBMTD BusTracker arrivals by text.

It's easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Find your bus stop id.

    Bus stop ids can be found when looking up arrival times or by hovering over your stop on the map.

  2. Text sbmtd [stopID] to 41411

    Be sure to text "sbmtd", a space, and then the actual stop ID number, such as "sbmtd 823" (without quotes).

  3. Receive estimated arrival times.

Important note: Standard carrier charges for text messaging may apply. Check with your mobile carrier first.


Here's how the text message you send might look if you were going to catch a Route 3 bus going downtown at State and Hope (which has the stop id 823).

Send "sbmtd 823" (without the quotes) to 41411, like this:

After your message is received, you'll get a message like this telling you that the next Route 3 bus is in 4 minutes with another bus arriving in 15.
