Your safety is our priority
The Emergency Alarm (EA) is a long yellow bar located above the windows of a subway train and should be used if a customer needs emergency medical, police or fire services.
The TTC is one of the safest transit systems in the world. As Your Safety Partner we want you to know what we are doing to make the TTC even safer, and what you can do to help.
An important part of running a safe transit system is preparing for emergencies. TTC employees are always ready to respond when needed – and you can be too.
