Big brother is watching! This is a good idea and well meaning but I can see this will be abused easily. Nowadays people think harassment is someone just locking eyes briefly with you by chance on the TTC. Honestly I hope this app helps curb harassment.
With the way this world is today I personally think this app is an excellent idea. I pray this app goes far and helps to not only keep riders safe but also TTC employess. Thankyou for making this.
It's a good app for reporting whatever happens on the bus by the passengers. However, I hope they put an option for reporting the drivers (e.g. for careless driving) as well.
I felt a lot safer riding the TTC before I saw ads everywhere helpfully reminding me that I could be "attacked" for holding hands with my girlfriend. Ya, people say stuff sometimes, but whatever (and never before on the TTC, btw). I usually successfully avoid thinking about it, but now it's in my face every time I ride. With the reviews here saying things like "Looking forward to using this app!", I have to wonder who exactly this entire campaign was designed for. Seriously... who *looks forward* to a chance to report harassment?!
I was interviewed by breakfast television the day this app was made publicly available, and it got me thinking about the impact that giving creedence to the opinions of the general public with no system in place to assess the mental stability, validity of opinions, and the inevitable false alarms that will be taking place. On the other hand i do see the benefit of us, the citizens of our society being able to safely and freely not only express but have an impact on what is going on in the world around them. My concerns are, we, as a democratic government hire police officers wjo are required a substantial amount of mental and physical training so that they can be trusted to make judgement calls on what is worth time, effort, tax dollars, and ultimately public safety
Amazing and very important app for TTC users. I am glad that such an easy to use and powerful safety app exists.
