Transit Watch (780-442-4900)
Safety and Security is Everyone’s Business. Call to Report Unusual and Suspicious Activity
Transit Watch is a public awareness program that encourages the active participation of ETS passengers and employees in maintaining a safe transit environment. The message is simple - we all have a responsibility to look out for our own safety and the safety of our fellow citizens.
ETS employees have specialized training, knowledge and experience. While our passengers contribute a host of extra eyes and ears that can identify potential emergency situations. By staying alert and working together, we can maintain a safe and welcoming transit environment.
