In addition to email, I would like to start using RainedOut.com if we have any bus problems. You have to subscribe to this service by your departing stop.
Rainedout.com is an SMS messaging system that allows us to reach the smallest segment of our club or the entire club to share information on the fly. This helps if we encounter traffic, or are delayed for any reason. I can reach out to those who have subscribed to the system with a brief SMS telling them at the granularity of a bus stop. Here's the link to sign up and learn more. All of the currently used Bus Stops are listed by their name. Skokie is no longer separate from Old Orchard, so if you signed up before for Old Orchard, you'll have to re-subscribe for Skokie/Old Orchard.
