The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) launched its SafeTTC app in early September to combat harassment and crime on public transit. So far, three arrests have been made – two related to sexual assault and one for robbery.
A new app and ad campaign from the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) aims to deter harassment and offer increased support to victims.
SafeTTC, launched earlier this month, allows transit riders to report an incident to transit control, or call 911 if it’s an emergency. Users can send texts, photos or videos. The seriousness of the issue will be assessed and transit enforcement officers or police officers will be dispatched as needed.
