ELERTS Corp. observes Driver Appreciation Day, touts safety app

Posted on March 17, 2017

In honor of Driver Appreciation Day, ELERTS Corp. is reminding the transit industry that it offers its "See Something, Say Something" mobile app, which allows riders to instantly and discretely report safety and security concerns.

Physical and verbal assaults on transit drivers have been reported with the ELERTS app. Riders report what they see and hear and can send a photo/video, plus a GPS map identifying the incident location. This reporting app enables real-time two-way communication between rider and console operator, without a word being said.

The app can be branded with a transit agency’s system logo and works with iPhone and Android smartphones. A convenient drop-down menu makes it easy for riders to indicate report type, such as assault, robbery, medical emergency, or suspicious activity.

ELERTS is a provider of mass transit “See Something, Say Something” apps. With years of experience, the ELERTS system is proven to deliver results. Police gain real-time visibility to activities in a way that was not previously available.
