Get to and from your destination safely while traveling on TriMet.

Safety tips while riding…

  • Don’t run across traffic to catch your bus or train — if you have to run, it’s not your ride
  • Never cross the street in front of a bus unless it’s stopped at a red light
  • Look both ways before crossing train tracks and always use designated crossings
  • When it’s dark out, wear light-colored clothing, reflectors or lights
  • Hold on to a seat or handrail while the bus or train is in motion
  • Keep track of your belongings while you’re on board, and be sure to secure your smartphone or tablet when you’re near the doors
  • When you’re walking, be aware of your surroundings and check for cars, buses and trains before checking your phone
  • If you see suspicious behavior or spot a suspicious package, or if there is an emergency or unsafe situation on board, tell a TriMet employee immediately or call or text 9-1-1

Be safe at Park & Rides…

  • Do not leave valuable items visible in your car — better yet, leave them at home or take them with you when you go
  • If you must leave items in your car, stow them in the trunk or in the middle console before you go
  • Check to make sure your vehicle is locked before you walk away
  • Close and lock all windows and doors when you park
  • If you see suspicious behavior or spot a suspicious package, tell a TriMet employee immediately or call 9-1-1
  • If you’re a regular Park & Ride user, consider installing an antitheft device (like an alarm or immobilizing device) in your vehicle
