A Framework for Reimagining Transit Safety
TransForm’s Safety on Transit Policy Framework
Safety on transit is essential to reviving ridership and creating a thriving, transit-first culture. TransForm’s vision for safety centers on a holistic definition of objective and subjective safety as experienced by marginalized communities and the most vulnerable riders.
To make transit safe for everyone, transit agencies must look beyond policing. Transit agencies across the country are already implementing alternative safety pilots and programs, but there is still a long way to go before we achieve transit systems where everyone feels safe. Collaboration and active partnerships among transit agencies, community-based organizations, and everyday riders are key to achieving a world where everyone can ride fearlessly.
