Vancouver Bus Times via Text Messages

Translink has finally finished their official system to get upcoming bus times via text message. To use it:

- Send a text message to phone number 33333.
- The text inside the message you send needs to be the 5 digit unique number for the bus stop you're at. You can find this number in the upper right hand corner of all bus stop signs (or look on the TransLink website).
- They will text you back with upcoming bus numbers and times.

I tested this service out today and it worked for me. The reply text came back very fast too. Nice!

This info comes via Vancouver Transit Camp.

I've been trying to do this for the last few hours but it keeps saying 'sending failed'. Does anyone know whether these text messages are more expensive than others, perhaps my prepay chatr package will not allow it?
