DART Say Something: Free Safety and Security Mobile App for Dallas Area Rapid Transit Riders
The DART Say Something Safety and Security App offers riders a quick and discreet method for reporting concerns directly to Dallas Area Rapid Transit. 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 Dallas Area Rapid Transit:
* The “Report an Incident” button allows users to send text or photos directly to Dallas Area Rapid Transit. 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. Riders can also send reports anonymously if they choose.
* The “Call 911” button will connect riders directly to the 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 DART Say Something may display alerts from Dallas Area Rapid Transit about specific persons of interest. For example, information may be displayed 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 Dallas Area Rapid Transit discreetly.
Check-In. Users can share their location on a map and indicate if they are “OK” or “Need Help”. This information can be shared with friends and family by Email and SMS.
