How To Contact Transit Watch

AS ALWAYS: If you need to report a life-threatening emergency, call 9-1-1 and give the operator your location or bus or train number.

The bus numbers are located in several places on the bus like near the door, on the front and rear of the bus and inside the bus at the front.  It is a good idea to be aware of your bus number.


On the trains, the car numbers are located on the outside and inside of each train car.

If you "See Something" that is suspicious, you should contact the Metro Sheriffs. You can do this by contacting a Metro Sheriff's Deputy in person or by phone.

You may call them at: (888) 950-SAFE (7233)

BY P-TEL: (Passenger Telephones)
These are located throughout the Metro system at every entrance or Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) and the Gate array, where you enter with your TAP pass, on the Red line.

You can contact any Metro Security or Sheriff's deputy to report suspicious activity.
