Our Be the One program was created to encourage OC Bus riders to be more alert and engaged while riding. You are often the first to notice if something doesn’t seem right. And when it comes to human trafficking or potential criminal activity, saying something to our bus drivers can set the wheels in motion to protect lives and rescue those in distress.
We also want our riders to Be the One to ride prepared! While earthquakes, severe weather, and long power outages are highly unlikely, they can affect OC Bus service. Riding prepared means planning for the unexpected.
Be the One is funded by the U.S. Department of Home Security Transit Security Grant Program. This section provides links to important information, compelling stories, and tips on how you can Be the One to make a difference!
