Metro-North going 'coo coo' with text alerts
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Metro-North is going "coo-coo."
That's the name of the railroad's new text messaging service.
It delivers departure and arrival information right to your cell phone.
MTA officials will introduce the service Friday at Grand Central Station.
Just text your station-to-station request, such as Rye to Grand Central, to 266266, or "coo coo," and you'll get train schedules instantly.
The service has been in place for the Long Island Rail Road since January.
