Selected Connex Train Stations are trialling a new initiative called ‘Safety Zones’ to help passengers feel safe when travelling on public transport.
The new initiative is part of a series of programs, which will be integrated throughout the system.
The ‘Safety Zone’ will be outlined by station signage and clear markings on the ground. The specified areas will be well lit and located within reach of the emergency buttons, which are present at all Connex stations. Most importantly, these areas receive comprehensive video surveillance throughout operational hours.
Safety Zones will be clearly marked so passengers will be able to identify their ‘Safety Zone’ easily when arriving at a platform.
The ‘Safety Zone’ program is part of a push to improve security and safety at Connex stations and on Connex trains.
