Did you know you can get real time arrival times via text message with our GO! service?

Just text your 5-digit stop ID to GOMTS (46687) and you'll get an immediate response with the next arrival times for all the routes at your stop!

What's my stop number?

You can find your stop number at the bottom of each bus stop sign or in the left-hand corner of the bus pole schedule displays. 

You can also get it by viewing the stop on our Schedules & Real Time Page or calling our MTS Information and Trip Planning Office


The text said the bus would come at a certain time, but it came at a different time.  Why?

GO! will tell you the time the bus is predicted to arrive at the time you sent the text message.  The closer the time the bus is supposed to arrive, the more accurate the predictions will be.  The bus may make up time or lose time since you sent your original text. 

In addition, if you are at a stop that's not at a timepoint, the time GO! tells you is estimated.  We always recommend arriving a few minutes before the predicted time to ensure you catch your bus. 

I'm not receiving any messages from the GO! service. Why?

GO! works with most cell phone providers through a short code (46687). However, some providers don't allow texting to a short code or you may have texting to short codes blocked on your cell phone plan to prevent services which charge for texting. We know that the following companies might not work with the short code: Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, and Tracfone.

We have set up a regular phone number which provides the same information as our short code and will allow those who can't text to short codes to have access to GO! Please send your text to 619.632.5827.

Is there a charge for GO! text messages?

Regular text messaging rates from your cell provider apply. See our Terms and Conditions for more information.
