Alert SacRT: Free Safety and Security Mobile App for Riders
The Alert SacRT Safety and Security App offers riders a quick and discreet method for reporting safety and security concerns directly to RT Police. App users can send photos, six second video, text descriptions, and locations of suspicious people or activities. From the home screen, users have two easy options for contacting RT Police:
* The “Report an Issue” button allows users to send text or photos directly to RT. To ensure discretion, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app. When reporting an issue, users can select locations and report categories to assist RT Police. Riders can also send reports anonymously if they chose.
* The “Call RT Police” button will connect customers directly to RT Police.
The application is designed for robust operation even under conditions of poor signal strength. If you send a report from an area without cellular/Wi-Fi connectivity, it will be stored and sent when connectivity returns. The system is also designed to send text descriptions before photos so that the police can get information as quickly as possible.
BOLO (Be On the Look Out) Alerts. BOLO Alerts on Alert SacRT may display alerts from RT Police about specific persons of interest. For example, RT may display information about a missing person or child, such as where they were last seen. If you see a person from a BOLO, immediately call 9-1-1 and send an app report to RT discreetly.
Help keep RT safe, "See It - Hear It - Report It."
2) Noted that your name and contact info are not sent to dispatcher for Anonymous reports.
3) Optimized app-to-server communication to remove unused data fields, like battery level and GPS, from some calls.
Ratings and Reviews
Extremely thankful for this app
I feel so much safer and confident that Regional Transit cares about my welfare and concerns with this app available. I have had excellent response times on reports and find the ability to give clear information in a quick manner very useful.
Difficult to find app in App Store
Can't find under Sacramento RT, Sacramento Regional Transit, Regional Transit, etc. in the App Store. Had to find under Alert RT but only knew the name from someone else. If I didn't have someone who already had the app I'd be unable to locate. Need to add search criteria
App is good with quick response. Wish the other app with train times was still around. Cannot locate that either. Only Zip Pass and I don't need it. :-/
I highly recommend it to anyone to uses RT regularly. Great design, easy to use, and good response.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
