Tips for your Safety While Riding Public Transport

While millions of people ride on public Transportation every day is a good idea to always stay alert. If you are a women having a personal alarm or pepper spray for protection is not a bad idea. I know that while you want to sleep make sure you protect what is yours.

Safety on the Train

* Never get on the last car you need to stay with other people just in case. The last car is away from everything mostly people.

* Keep all your personal items next to you on your lap or if standing makes sure you have your back to the wall of the train.

* Always check to see where the emergency cord id or any help button should you ever need it you won't have to get crazy to find it. I do this in most nightclubs or hotels. I never want to be in a place I don't know how to get out should I need to.

*While on the train make sure you wait where other people are don't go to the side where no one is.

* If you feel like something is not safe wait for a stop that is busy and get off or change your seat. Please don't get off at a stop that no one is at. If someone were to follow you, you would be alone.

Bus Stop Safety Tips

* Know when the bus is coming don't go to the bus stop at night and just wait you could be their along time.

* Go to a bus stop that has other people waiting.

Safety in a cab

* When calling the cab ask for the drivers name so when you get in ask them what their name is just for a little extra protection.

* Its a good idea to have your money and keys ready when the cab arrives you don't want to go into you bag while driving.

* If your gut tells you to get out just ask the driver to pull over on a busy street and get out. The worst that could happen is you have to walk a little its better then becoming a victim.

If you travel on public transportation allot you know most this. Its always a good idea to be ready just in case have a pepper spray or a personal alarm on you key chain or in your bag make sure it is not in the bottom of you bag so you can't find it. It is of no use to you if you can't find it when you need it most.
