A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.
Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.
Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.
AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.
