TTC text messaging not working


Hi, is anyone able to text the TTC messaging service number successfully to find out bus routes? The number is 898882, and all my friends are able to text it to find out bus times, but whenever I try, the SMS "fails" from my Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. I really want to be able to be able to check my bus route schedule!

Sounds odd. You could try another number to see if it pops up but I'd suggest downloading Transit Now from the app store for all TTC routes. Even uses GPS for drivers that opt into it so an even see the bus / streetcars moving.

The SMS fails as in it refuses to send or it sends and you get no response?
It refuses to send...says "failed SMS"
Would love to download the app but my phone has no storage...

It works for me.  What text messaging app are you using?

Do any other route codes work? Which phone do you have? You could probably use an SD card to free up memory or even format as internal storage.
