Smartphone App

The Brass Star Group, LLC. developed the award-winning first Transit Watch Smartphone App which is a quick and easy way for transit riders to communicate directly to transit security and police about suspicious activity, crimes in progress or quality of life problems at a transit station or on a bus or rail line.

The Transit Watch Smartphone App gives transit riders the option of sending a photo along with a text message directly to transit security and police and features an easy to use report form that gives officers the workable information they need to quickly respond to a user report.  In addition, there is a text/chat feature that allows the dispatcher and app user to text directly to each other all while still remaining anonymous if the user desires.

The app also comes with a full dispatch system that can be tailored to your agency needs.
