SEPTA SMS Transit enables users to request scheduled trip information via text message. Users subscribe to the service via text. After setting up an account, users can receive schedule information by texting the Stop ID number for a bus, trolley, or subway stop to 41411. They will receive a return text with information on the four next scheduled trips from that stop. Users can include the specific route designation in the text to receive information on a certain route if the stop serves multiple routes.
In addition to using the SMS, there is also a simulator which people can use to experiment at no cost.
Finally, the SMS data can be accessed from an API. The data returned by the API is currently text format, \n separated. SEPTA expects to add JSON and XML versions later. The API can be accessed in the format:
[var1] = stop id
[var2] = route id OR i/o for inbound/outbound
[var3] = i/o for inbound/outbound only if route id is supplied
Stops fall into one of three categories, here’s an explanation with some sample links:
