PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SAFETY

Public transportation is convenient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Each bus/van may be equipped with a video and audio observation system. It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure a safe trip by observing the following safety tips.

GENERAL SAFETY

  • Tell a family member or friend your travel route. Call them when you arrive safely.
    Have your exact fare ready.
  • Don’t doze off or become engrossed in a book. It can make you an easy target. Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.
  • Keep your purse, bags, backpack and other belongings in your lap or between your feet. Do not leave them on an empty seat.
  • Be wary of noisy passengers arguing or causing a commotion. This could be an act to distract you while others try to steal your valuables.
  • If you feel threatened by other passengers, change your seat and alert the driver.
  • Avoid displaying cash, credit cards or expensive looking jewelry.
  • Notify the driver, police or security of any unattended packages or luggage on the bus/van or at the stop.
  • In case of emergency, contact the local authorities and alert the driver immediately.

BUS

  • Plan your route. It is important to know where you are going.
  • Remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop. Do not cross in front of the bus because traffic will not be stopped.
  • When possible, use a busy and well-lighted bus stop to get on and off a bus.

TAXI

  • Taxis are easy to identify by their colors, markings and models. Don’t accept rides from unmarked cars.
  • In the taxi, note the company name, cab number, driver’s name, taxi driver ID number and photograph.
  • Wear a seatbelt
