The most effective measure you can take to protect yourself against crime is to stay alert to your surroundings and trust your instincts.

  • Plan your trip before leaving
  • Use a well-lit and frequent used bus top
  • Try and wait with someone or have someone meet you at your stop
  • Always look confident in where you are going
  • Be aware of who gets on and off the bus with you
  • Do not display electronics or jewelry
  • Sit close to the driver
  • Use Winnipeg Transit’s Request stop program. This allows passengers to get off the bus between regular stops, from 7 p.m. until end of service.
  • Report any abuse or harassment to the driver and or contact Police immediately
