BART is launching a simple-to-use app available for iOS and Android devices that will allow riders to easily report crimes, suspicious items or activities on the BART system.
Riders have been asking for a safe, silent and discreet way to communicate with BART when they are on a train or in a station and this new application will make that happen.
“The BART Watch app will be free for BART riders to download from our website or they can go directly to the Apple App Store or Google Play,” said BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey. “This new technology will allow us to partner with our riders so they can 'See Something, Say Something,' and help us keep the system safer and more secure."
BART is the first system with this technology to offer versions in Spanish and Chinese.
