Be Alert, Informed, Involved and Prepared Your safety and security is a top priority at The Metro. We have taken steps to ensure the safety and security of our transit system, such as:
- Installing cameras on buses.
- Conducting emergency evacuation exercises.
- Making extra patrols and monitoring the remote video camera system.
In addition, The Metro is involved in the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) TransitWatch program that encourages our customers to be active participants in security matters. While we are working to keep you safe, we ask that you do the same. Follow these simple safety measures to keep you and other riders, especially young riders, safe. You are a vital part of our Safety and Security Team and we rely on you to be our “eyes and ears.” By practicing a few safety measures, such as waiting in well-lit areas, being aware of your surroundings and notifying operators in the event of an emergency, you will be able to help prevent crime. As customers, we want you to remember to be alert, informed, involved and prepared.
