Security on JeT
Jefferson Transit strives to make your experience on our transit system as safe and secure as possible. In 2008 Jefferson Transit began its quarterly Public Education Campaigns. These campaigns are trilingual (English/Spanish/Vietnamese) and focus on messages that make the public more aware of security issues, increase their emergency awareness, and teach them how to respond in the event of a problem.
Jefferson Transit releases these campaigns through:
- Website Messages
- Vehicle Posters
- Kiosk Posters
- Vehicle Voice Annunciator Messages
- Transit Security Outreach Days
- Transit Security Presentations
