Alert contains all available information about an individual transit alert or an announcement.
Note: The Alerts are sourced from transit agencies' API feeds and/or Twitter accounts (where available). If the alerts' origin is from Twitter, you are required to follow Twitter's general principles for presenting alerts correctly. We do not provide any data for Twitter's logos and links for Twitter's actions. The full guidance on the display requirements can be found on Twitter Display Requirements.
