MBTA See Say




    “See something say something” for smartphones.

    The MBTA See Say App offers riders a quick and discreet method for reporting suspicious activity directly and instantaneously to Transit Police. Using this app, riders can send the MBTA Transit Police pictures, text messages, and locations of suspicious activity.

    From the App home screen, riders have two easy options for contacting Transit Police:

    * The “Report a Problem” button allows riders to send text or photos directly to Transit Police. To ensure discretion, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app. When reporting an issue, riders can select station locations and report categories to assist transit police.

    * The “Call Transit Police” button will connect customers directly to Transit Police.

    The application is designed for the T. If you send a report in an area without cellular connectivity, it will be stored and sent when connectivity returns. The system is also design to send text before pictures so that Transit Police get reports as quickly as possible. 

    Additional Features

    Riders can sign up to receive MBTA T-Alerts through the app to be notified of service delays and disruptions.

    BOLO alerts. (Be On the Look Out) SeeSay may also display alerts from the MBTA. For example, SeeSay may display information about a missing person, such as where they were last seen. If you see this person you may call or send a report to Transit Police.

    Could be really good but images sent don't get recieved in a timely manner. Alerts are from the MBTA are delayed when they come at all.

    Although I fortunately haven't needed to send an alert it's comforting to have what promises to be a real-time aid. In the past some idiot in the train would do something awful and all I could do was wish I could report it to police. Now I probably can. Service alerts is not this app's primary purpose. Giving 1 star because it didn't give a service alert makes no sense. It's a perk of the app. Thanks MBTA for this.

    Will give 5 stars if alerts come at a reasonable time. I did not receive alerts until the afternoon.

    ammending my previous review -- now, I'm not getting alerts for any service I've checked off. But I am getting ones for a bus that I didn't know existed before the app told me it was stuck in traffic.
