Client: BART is the Bay Area Rapid Transit system – a heavy rail network that spans 104 miles and 4 counties. BART is the fifth-busiest heavy rail rapid transit system in the United States.
Project: BART provides realtime service advisories via its website, email and SMS. BlinkTag was hired to build an automated Twitter account for BART service advisories. Using the BART and Twitter APIs, @SFBARTalert was created, which provides timely transit status updates to nearly 73,000 followers.
