Safety and security are a top priority at CARTA. We work hard every day to ensure your ride is trouble-free. We constantly upgrade and improve our security measures while still delivering the fast, efficient service you expect.
CARTA bus operations are handled by Transdev, a world-class leader in the transit industry. Bus operators are trained in safety and security programs which include hours of classroom and behind the wheel training, along with performance standards and skills that must consistently be met. Bus operators are trained to call in medical emergencies, incidents, traffic accidents and house fires to the CARTA dispatch radio room immediately. Bus operators will also report suspicious individuals on the bus or individuals loitering at bus stops or at Park and Rides. In addition, CARTA works with many outside agencies on security drills and the latest detection devices for various chemical or biological agents.
