TORONTO — The Toronto Transit Commission is working on a new app that would allow riders to discreetly take a photo of a person who is harassing or assaulting someone and immediately submit a report, CBC News reports.
So far this year, the TTC says it has had 35 reports of sexual assault through the end of May. There were 56 sexual assault reports for all of 2014 and 67 in 2015. TTC CEO Andy Byford said he hopes the app will be a less obvious alternative to pressing the emergency strip on trains, buses or streetcars.
The app should roll out by the end of the year. For the full story, click here.
