VTAlerts - See Something, Say Something

At VTA, we know that you are sometimes the first to observe safety concerns, suspicious activities and medical emergencies.

So, what can you do to help?

VTA offers a mobile app for both the iPhone and Android smartphones, and the iPad. By downloading the free VTAlerts app you can call 911 in the event of an emergency or instantaneously report safety concerns directly to VTA Transit Security when traveling on our system. The test function even allows you to try out the app prior to real-time submission. We encourage all riders to use this function immediately to get comfortable navigating the app.

VTAlerts allows you to report the following:

  • Unattended bag or package
  • Medical emergency
  • Safety concern
  • Suspicious activity
  • Human Trafficking
  • Vandalism
  • Robbery or theft
  • Crime in progress
  • Assault or Fight

Together, we can make VTA Bus and Light Rail safer and more comfortable for all.

Safety and security is very important at VTA and we continually strive to find easy-to-use tools and new technologies to make our transit system safe for all of our passengers.

If you do not own a smartphone, you can text-a-tip to (408) 610-1440.​

Please note: The VTAlerts app is not intended to replace 911 emergency services. In the event of an actual emergency, call 911 for immediate assistance.
