BART has been planning an app for people to report in a “discreet, safe and silent way” when they witness incidents before they become a major problem. The app will also be available in Spanish and offer a simplified Chinese option.
The new app has been a longtime coming since riders have been asking for a “safe, silent and discreet way” to communicate with BART when bad shit goes down on the train or at the stations.
“This app will be free for BART riders to download from our website in a few months,” said BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey. “Riders will be able to upload pictures and location information, choose comments from dropdown menus or write their own comments in text boxes. BART will be the first transit agency to offer both Spanish and Simplified Chinese options for the app.” READ MORE HERE.
