The text messaging service has been supported out of my own pocket. And that doesn't scale. But the text messaging service has proven to be a great tool for the Madison community so I want to make it available at a price that covers my costs and doesn't make me rich.
In the next few weeks, I will turn off the free service on the current phone number for anyone that has not paid. Once you pay, the service will be re-enabled for your phone number and real-time arrival estimates will flow again!
The service will cost $2.00 per month. I will likely use PayPal and give you the option to pay on a monthly subscription basis. There will also be an option to pay for a full year at a discount - $20 per year.
Your subscription will give you an unlimited number of requests and I'll trust that you don't abuse the system.
I want to make this an even better service and will commit to you that I will improve it. I will commit to you - a paying user - the following improvements:
