As you have probably noticed, there have been several service updates sent out this past week, and while we do try to encapsulate them in one communication to minimize the number of emails and texts alerts, that is not always possible. Our goal is always to get information out to our riders when it becomes available to allow for a seamless travel experience. Below you’ll find some new updates as well as a recap of some you might have missed.
