We all have a responsibility to look out for the safety of the Guelph Transit community.

We encourage all Guelph Transit employees and riders as well as the general public to commit to being alert, informed, prepared and involved partners in safety.

Be on the alert for suspicious or unusual activity, including:

  • Packages or bags placed or planted in an out-of-the-way location (e.g., garbage can)
  • Individuals in the act of abandoning an object, package or substance and quickly leaving an area
  • Objects with unusual items (such as batteries, wires, tanks, bottles or bags)
  • An attached message or note
  • A suspicious cloud, mist, gas, vapour, odour or seeping fluid
  • Two or more individuals showing signs of distress (nausea, coughing, difficulty breathing, etc.)
  • A vehicle parked in a restricted area or odd location
  • A window/door open that is usually locked or closed
  • Or other out-of-the-ordinary situations

Tips for reporting suspicious activity

  • DO report suspicious or unusual activity immediately
  • Speak with a Guelph Transit employee
  • Call City of Guelph Bylaw at 519-837-2529 (when applicable)
  • In an emergency, call 911
  • DO describe specifically what you observed, including:
    • Who or what you saw
    • When you saw it
    • Where it occurred, including bus or stop number, if applicable, and
    • Why it’s suspicious
  • DON’T confront threatening people
  • DON’T put yourself in dangerous situations
  • DON’T report suspicious activity on Guelph Transit’s website or social media channels (Facebook and Twitter)

Report suspicious or unusual activity.

Safety and security is everyone’s priority.
