Subway Safety Tips

  • Keep pocketbooks and book-bags secure at all time.
  • Remove your backpack when entering a crowded train or elevator, always make sure that all flaps are secure.
  • Do not flash money or jewelry in public places.
  • If you carry a wallet, never carry it in your back pocket. Front pants and breast pockets are much more difficult for the pickpocket.
  • Be suspicious of anyone approaching you and trying to distract you. Pickpockets usually work in teams.
  • When traveling on the subway during off-hours, ride in the cars with the conductor.
  • When waiting for a train late at night stand by the token booth or in the area designed as off-hours waiting area.
  • Remember that no property is worth getting seriously injured over. If you find yourself a victim of a crime, remain calm and get to a safe place. Try and get a good description of the person committing the crime and call the police immediately.
  • Do not stand near the edge of the train platform.
  • Do not listen to music on your cellphone while on the subway system. There is a strong need to always be aware of your surroundings.

  2. Your Hunter OneCard is non-transferrable and may not be used by any other person, for any reason.
  3. Allowing other persons to use your Hunter OneCard to gain entry on to Hunter's campus or to use campus facilities is a violation of Hunter College's policy and may result in that person receiving a summons for Trespassing.
