Transcript: Dear Fellow Rider

The events of September 11th have caused Americans everywhere to question their safety and security. People wonder whether they are safe in places that they previously took for granted. Since the terrorist events of last week, we have heard from many of you asking about the safety of your Metro system. We have published this brochure to respond to your questions and concerns.

Metro Transit Police officers in uniform and in plain clothes routinely patrol Metro buses and Metrorail trains, stations and parking lots. Other Metro employees are inspecting all segments of the system and are also in a heightened alert status. They are wearing orange safety vests for easy identification. Emergency response plans are in place for a variety of crisis scenarios.

You can help.
