Passenger Assistance Alarm (PAA)
The Passenger Assistance Alarm (PAA) has been installed on the articulated buses (double long buses) and the double decker buses in order to further ensure passenger safety.
The PAA provides customers with a system to notify the bus operator when there is an emergency at the back of the bus.
The PAA is only to be used in the event that the passenger cannot reach the operator at the front of the bus to notify them of the emergency.
Ensuring the safety and security of our passengers and operators is our priority. Similar to the emergency call boxes at shelters, the PAA offers passengers further assurance that they can feel safe when using transit.
