Enable Critical Alerts (iOS)

Requires BART Team App version 5.1.11.4 (iOS)  - How to check your app version

This feature is for Apple iOS users, where 'Critical Alerts' can be enabled to notify you when you receive a BART broadcast - even if your phone is set to silent or 'Do not Disturb' mode is on. When enabled, your alert tone will sound at the volume you set within the settings area, so you'll want to make sure it's not too soft or too loud. 

For those of you who are using an Android device, this feature comes standard with many (but not all) Android models. You can ensure your Android device alerts you even when your phone is set to ‘Do not Disturb’ by going into settings and using the toggle switch ‘Ignore do not Disturb’.

For instructions on overriding ‘Do not Disturb’ mode for Android, please follow this link

2. Tap on 'Settings' in the main menu

3. Scroll down the screen until you see 'Critical Alerts'

4. Use the toggle provided to either enable or disable

5. Use the slider provided to choose the volume

Please note: you will need to ensure the volume in your settings (specifically for 'Critical Alerts') has been turned up for this feature to work
