(Published Friday, May 20, 2016)

Transit authorities in BC (Translink), Alberta (Calgary Transit), and Ontario (Grand River Transit) utilized the Ivrnet-powered NEXTEXT system to serve a combined 1.4 million messages to their ridership between May 5th and May 19th.  This message helped the Canadian Red Cross' Fort McMurray donation campaign achieve approximately 40% of all donations through SMS.

A big THANK YOU to our transit partners for donating their message space for the relief effort!
