Passengers use public transportation 34 million times each weekday1. Given the high volume of usage, it’s not surprising that daily accidents and emergencies occur.

Public transportation violence has been escalating. Theft, sexual assault, vandalism, physical violence, and other crimes are increasingly committed against transportation professionals and their passengers, in both large cities and small towns.
