Travel tips & tricks

Figure out where you’re going

Work out the safest path to your destination (least amount of walking, sticking to busier streets).

Keep to well-lit public areas

Avoid shortcuts through secluded areas, dark alleyways and dimly lit paths.

If you’re distressed or threatened, hail any transit vehicle or employee

Our staff is trained to deal with many situations. We can help out on the spot by offering our vehicles as a safe haven for anyone in distress and by contacting our Control Centre via two-way radio.

Check in with someone

Let someone know where you’re going and how you’re getting there.

Avoid distractions

Make sure distractions such as texting or loud music don’t prevent you from being aware of your surroundings.

Trust your instincts

Move away from anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable.

Stay awake

Don’t let your guard down just because you’ve boarded the vehicle. Keep an eye and ear out for your stop.

Keep your valuables out of sight and at hand

Expensive looking jewellery, electronics and money can catch the eye of thieves. Hold onto your purse and put your wallet in your front pockets.

  • Call boxes and pay phones at Transitway stations
