Fortunately, most of us travel daily on our commutes without any problems.
Even so, Moovit has put together our top tips for staying safe on public transit:
- Trip Plan — Don’t be a target for criminals. Pre-planning can provide a higher level of confidence, and Moovit can help. Type your destination in advance into Moovit’s Trip Plan to check your route via public transit.
- Share Your Trip (Android or iOS) — After planning your trip, share it with your friends and family so they can see your full itinerary via your channel of choice. This way, someone knows when to expect you.
- Get Off Notifications — We’re most vulnerable when we’re tired or preoccupied. After planning your trip, tap Live Directions so that you get a notification when your stop is coming up. Don’t miss your stop and end up where you don’t want to be!
- Real Time Arrivals— Standing at a deserted bus stop can be intimidating, especially when it’s dark. Instead, use Moovit’s Real Time arrival times to know precisely when the bus will arrive so you can wait safely elsewhere as long as possible.
