CTA Tattler Starts Twitter Service

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Sep 25, 2008 3:25PM

In an effort to keep riders up to date with delays and announcements, the CTA Tattler has initiated CTATweet, an unofficial Twitter site to enable CTA riders to share alerts including reroutes, stoppages, and other CTA-related issues immediately with other riders. Given the CTA's tendency to randomly shutdown or reroute buses without much notice to riders, this sounds good to me.
