Reporting Emergencies

To report illegal or suspicious activity, call 9-1-1. In the event of an emergency, always follow the instructions of a uniformed CATS Safety and Security personnel, police officer or fire official.

On a LYNX Train or Streetcar: Notify any uniformed CATS Safety and Security personnel or police officer. You can also use the emergency intercom inside the vehicle on either end of the light rail train. This will connect you to the train operator. If you’re riding the streetcar, notify the operator immediately.​

At a LYNX Station: Notify any uniformed CATS Safety and Security personnel or police officer. All LYNX Stations are equipped with emergency blue light phones that connect to emergency responders.

On a CATS Bus or at a stop: Notify the bus operator immediately; The bus operator does have access to a silent alarm system that when activated, contacts CATS main operations control center. When the alarm is activated the destination sign on the bus will change to "Emergency" and the outside lights of the bus will flash letting the police know the alarm has been activated.
