#ThisIsWhere … the TTC combats harassment

9/8/17 6:00 AM

This week (Sept. 6), the TTC launched a bold campaign and mobile app as part of its commitment to combat harassment in all its forms and enhance public safety while riding the TTC.

Titled #ThisIsWhere, the campaign confronts different kinds of harassment through a series of real-life customer encounters, including sexual harassment and harassment based on gender identity, ability and race.

The new app is called SafeTTC and is very easy to use. Essentially, it enables the user to send a discreet message from a subway car, bus or streetcar to a dedicated terminal in the TTC’s Transit Control Centre where staff will respond based on the nature of the incident being reported, including dispatching Transit Enforcement Officers or calling police.

In the event of an emergency requiring immediate police, fire or medical assistance, the TTC advises using the familiar yellow emergency alarm, calling 9-1-1 or by alerting a uniformed TTC employee.

More details can be found at thisiswhere.ca.

While the TTC is already a very safe system, this initiative will join the many safety features already in place as we make your journey more pleasant and evermore safe.
