Attn: Customer Service (WHO WOULD WE CONTACT)
If you are deaf or hearing impaired and use either a teletypewriter (TTY) or computer equipment with TTY capability to place your telephone calls, dial 711 (Relay BJCTA/MAX Transit) then give If you want to call someone using TRS, use your TTY or dial 711 on your telephone, and you will automatically be connected to a TRS operator. If you’re a TRS user traveling out of state and want to make a call, there is no longer a need to learn the state’s TRS provider’s telephone number. Just dial 711. It’s fast, functional and free.
The 711 code is not just for use by person’s with disabilities. Both voice and TRS users can initiate a call from any telephone, anywhere in the United States, without having to remember and dial a seven or ten digit access number. For persons who have been using TRS for years, the convenience of dialing three digits is obvious.
711 dialing access does not work for Video Relay Service (VRS), Internet Protocol (IP) relay or IPCTS Relay calls, because such calls are initiated through the internet. Hearing persons initiating a VRS or IP Relay call may do so by calling a provider’s 800 number: IPCTS users just call their party directly, and a Communications Assistant (CA) is automatically connected to the call.
TTY Access Phone Numbers:
AT&T National Relay Service
All Users: 711
TTY Alabama User: 1-800-548-2546
