Safer Transport Northumbria App launched as part of ‘It’s the End of the Line’ campaign
Safer Transport Northumbria – that’s the name of the app that transport users across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear are being urged to download as part of a regional effort to help make our transport links the safest in the country.
Launched by Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, the app is part of an ongoing ‘Safer Streets’ commitment to tackle Violence Against Women and Girls and improve safety on public transport.
The app is part of a public awareness campaign called ‘It’s the End of the Line’ because it’s the end of the line when it comes to unwanted behaviours and attitudes that make people, particularly women and girls feel unsafe why travelling around our region
The idea behind the app is to make it easy for anyone travelling anywhere in the region to flag concerns for another’s safety. You can also use it to tell us that you feel unsafe.
