Safety and Security on ETS

Maintaining a safe and welcoming transit environment involves active cooperation between alert passengers and trained ETS personnel. One way ETS does its part, is by ensuring employees have specialized training, knowledge and experience. Our passengers help by identifying and reporting unusual, suspicious or emergency situations.
