It's true that transit apps are a dime and dozen, and pretty much every city seems to have them, but the Toronto Transit Commission or TTC is offering a transit app with a difference, in that it is designed with a focus on helping bus and subway riders get to their destinations safely.
Available for both the iOS and Android platforms, the SafeTTC transit app helps customers discreetly report cases of harassment or suspicious incidents directly to TTC authorities. The app can be used to input details about specific incidents or just brief overviews, depending on the context and how safe the person feels while using the app.
The unfortunate fact is that transit systems are often hubs of crime and harassment, but by using the smartphone app platform, Toronto transit authorities are looking to help riders fight back against harassment.
