Transit Watch is a nationwide safety and security awareness campaign designed to encourage the active participation of transit passengers and employees in working together to maintain a safe transit environment. The campaign provides information and instructions to transit passengers and employees so that they know what to do and whom to contact in the event of an emergency in a transit setting. Transit Watch invites riders and employees to be the “eyes and ears” of their local transit system.
In response to the need for increased attention to safety and security in today’s post-9/11 environment, the Safe Citizen Coalition of Palm Beach County is pleased to participate in the nationwide efforts to ensure the safety and security of our public transportation network.
Transit Watch was developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
