When it comes to safety,
we can always use an extra pair of eyes.
What is Transit Watch?
The campaign is a nationwide safety and security awareness program designed to encourage the active participation of transit passengers and employees in working together to maintain a safe transit environment. COLTS participates in Transit Watch as an added safety measure for our transit system.
Transit Watch asks you to be the “eyes and ears” of the local transit system.
Be observant, alert, watchful and aware. If something does not look quite right, report it to the authorities. Tell your driver immediately or call 346-2061.
Take initiative to become the community’s transit eyes and ears.
We can count on a safe ride if we all look out for each other.
Transit Watch was developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in partnership with the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
