AC Transit Launches New Safety App: TipNow
See It, Share It with TipNow-AC Transit
As part of its commitment to safety for riders and operators, AC Transit has launched a new, FREE smartphone app, TipNow–AC Transit, that allows riders to report non-emergencies and other incidents at the touch of a button. Tips can be sent
- via the app
- by voicemail or text to 510-296-3355, or
- email to firstname.lastname@example.org
TipNow-AC Transit allows users to anonymously report disruptive behavior, suspicious activity, theft, vandalism and unattended packages. Once in the app, riders are asked to input their bus line and bus number along with a description and optional photo of the incident. All messages are received by our AC Transit Operations Control Center, which then decides how to handle each individual incident.
Developed by Resilligence Incorporated, TipNow is a popular mobile application used on college campuses and by city governments.
As the first transit agency to use TipNow, AC Transit will undergo a one-year pilot program, with the option to extend and enhance the app after that time.
Currently, TipNow is available in ENGLISH only.
