"See something Say something” for smartphones
The MBTA See Say App offers riders a quick and discreet method for reporting suspicious activity directly and instantaneously to Transit Police. Using this app, riders can send the MBTA Transit Police pictures, text messages, and locations of suspicious activity.
From the App home screen, riders have two easy options for contacting Transit Police:
* The “Report a Problem” button allows riders to send text or photos directly to Transit Police. To ensure discretion, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app. When reporting an issue, riders can select station locations and report categories to assist transit police.
* The “Call Transit Police” button will connect customers directly to Transit Police.
The application is designed for the T. If you send a report in an area without cellular connectivity, it will be stored and sent when connectivity returns. The system is also design to send text before pictures so that Transit Police get reports as quickly as possible.
Riders can sign up to receive MBTA T-Alerts through the app to be notified of service delays and disruptions.
BOLO alerts. (Be On the Look Out) SeeSay may also display alerts from the MBTA. For example, SeeSay may display information about a missing person, such as where they were last seen. If you see this person you may call or send a report to Transit Police.
Ratings and Reviews
An app for MBTA crimefighters
This is a great app. I will See Something Say Something using the app. Its a lot easier than calling an emergency line and explaining what I saw. Thanks MBTA!
Thank you for an App that is useful, easy to use, builds confidence
Finally someone has thought of an App that will enable people to look out for each other! I know the Police cannot be everywhere and it's nice to know that people can contribute if they wish. I love my silly game Apps but an App that is useful and boosts safety and security is what we need in this day and age. Commuting in Boston has just improved... at no cost to us.... way to go MBTA!!!
I first used this app when a suspicious character approached me at an ATM at a train station. They responded immediately, and you were texting right with the officers, you could send pictures, too, which i was too slow to make use of... But next time I'll make better use of this service. I feel safer knowing i can really get a meaningful, quick response from the T police.
