Social transport hub

A new social media channel launched this month to keep Bay Area transit riders informed and engaged.

The Discord Project will house service alerts from most major transportation companies in the Bay Area, including Caltrain, BART, SamTrans, AC Transit and the San Francisco Bay Ferry. All participating agencies will have representatives active on the platform to engage with their respective riders.

An Events tab lists both in-person and virtual events from each agency so people can ask questions and coordinate with other transit agencies. Users can learn about and comment on events, and stay up to date on developments in the Bay Area’s transportation systems. Additionally, the server allows transit users to communicate with each other, share photos and discuss transit policies.

Later this year, there are plans to introduce a feature that will automatically populate press releases and blog posts from each participating agency.

More than 1,200 people signed up for the Discord Project in the first 48 hours after its launch on May 11. To join the platform, visit
