You can get TransitTracker™ arrival times on your phone in a text message. Just text your Stop ID Number to 27299 to get arrivals for the buses and trains serving that stop.

Here are some examples:

  • Text 3633 for the next arrivals at Madison & Grand
  • Text 3633 14 for only the next 14-Hawthorne arrivals at Madison & Grand
  • Text 8377 red for only the next MAX Red Line arrivals at Rose Quarter MAX Station
