Be Our Eyes and Ears
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agengy launched Transit Watch, a public awareness and education campaign patterned after the successful Neighborhood Watch program. While Muni is already one of the safest transit agencies in the nation, the Transit Watch campaign encourages everyone to help keep Muni safe by being aware of their surroundings and alert to activities, packages or situations that seem suspicious. If something out of the ordinary is observed, it should be reported immediately to the bus or light rail operator, fare inspector, uniformed security officer or law enforcement authorities.
