Security tips

We recognize that victims of crime are not responsible for the offences committed against them. We offer these tips as additional precautions you can take to increase your sense of security on transit.

  • Be aware of your surroundings: avoid distractions like texting or listening to loud music
  • Keep to well-lit and open areas, and use the station’s Night Stop after 9 pm
  • If you are at a Transitway station, find the emergency call boxes or payphones
  • If you are harassed or threatened, or if you see someone who seems to be lost or in trouble, flag down any OC Transpo vehicle or employee for help
