MTA Metro-North Railroad (NY) passengers can get information about train schedules via text message, thanks to a partnership between the MTA and text-scheduling company CooCoo. The service complements Train Time, which delivers Internet-based information to computers and smart phones. “This service expands the ability of our customers to access information on train arrival and departure times on a user-friendly, station-specific basis,” said Metro-North president Howard Permut in a statement. CooCoo text messages are also available for Long Island Rail Road.
