Weekly number of incidents of assault and harassment against transit workers

We are providing more frequently updated data and statistics on different aspects of our transit system. This page provides recent data on assaults and harassment against our employees.

Updated November 25, 2020

The safety of our workforce and our customers is our top priority and we are hopeful that increased transparency about the number of these incidents in our system will keep everyone safer and more vigilant.

We plan to update the page weekly with the prior week's figures. Each week’s update will be based on verified incidents as of the report date so data for prior weeks may change as additional incidents are verified.
