Kirk, Steve developed a program to automatically notify pilots of any new transport requests in your area. If you will log in, click on User Control Panel on the upper left page of the Board Index it will take you to your profile page. Under your profile, when you scroll down, there is a box to fill in the number of miles willing to fly. Fill that in and then click submit.
As long as your email allows you to receive automatic notificaton emails, when a request is made along your flight path, then you can click on the link in the auto notification and respond to the request. This is a very useful option and saves you time. If you have trouble making the change on your profile page, just let us know.
