Stay Alert, Stay Safe!

Public transit can be a very convenient and cost-effective way to commute. But it’s also very important that we pay attention and take precautions to stay safe while we use the transit system. Here are a few tips on making sure that you ensure your safety.

  1. Stay alert. Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. Scan the area to see if there is any suspicious behaviour.
  2. Have a plan. Know your travel plans and routes ahead of time.
  3. Avoid sleeping. Falling asleep while commuting on public transit could make you a target for thieves. They are always looking for an easy grab.
  4. Keep your valuables close. Valuables should be out of sight and zipped away to avoid attention.
  5. Trust your instincts. If you have a gut feeling that something isn’t right-follow your gut.
