Crime Stoppers Crime Stoppers

A first for New Zealand – text to report a crime on our transport network

Auckland Transport (AT) has teamed up with Crime Stoppers to make our public transport safer for all.

AT is encouraging customers to report incidents of crime, fare evasion and anti-social behaviour via text, call or email*. It's anonymous, easy to do and will contribute to a safer journey for everyone on our transport network.

Reporting an incident

  1. If you see an incident of anti-social behaviour, crime or fare evasion*, send a text to our Crime Stoppers number.
  2. Send details of the incident and your bus and train route to 4030. Try and provide as much information as you can.
  3. Crime Stoppers will receive the message and share it with AT.
  4. AT will then look into the issue further and may deploy our Transport Officers or other suitable staff to investigate further.

*This texting service is not a replacement for 111. If you witness an incident that requires an immediate response from the emergency services (Police, Fire, Ambulance) then call 111.
