Metro Transit customers can now discreetly report suspicious or unwanted behavior through text messages.

Using the “Text for Safety” feature, customers are put in direct contact with trained Metro Transit staff who can respond by text and send Transit Police if needed. 

The service is being introduced so individuals can seek help even if they don’t feel safe making a phone call. It is expected to be especially useful in harassment situations.
