Call, if you can; text, if you can't


Call 9-1-1 to report a crime, text 612-900-0411 if you can’t. Every car has an LRV # on the inside. When you report an issue be sure to reference that number as a precise locator for help. 

While everyone knows to call 9-1-1 to report a crime, what if you don’t feel comfortable making that call due to concerns for your personal safety? Texting is an acceptable alternative.

Texting is also recommended for non-emergency situations, to silently report something that doesn’t look right on a bus, a train or at a transit shelter.

This service is also accessible via the Metro Transit Mobile App
