Transportation Safety

  • Have your ticket or change ready so you do not have to get your wallet out at a busy place.
  • Always wait in a well-lit area for your bus or train and wait near other people. If possible, meet a friend there to wait with you.
  • If you are on a bus or train alone, or if it is dark - stay as close to the driver as possible. Do not go to the back of the bus or train or to an upper level.
  • Stay awake while riding buses, trains and taxis.
  • Always take an aisle seat so you won't be blocked in.
  • Pay attention to who gets off at your stop.
  • Keep your belongings on you. Purses over your shoulder, larger bags between your legs as you sit, etc.
