  • Call and speak with our team on 1800 333 000 at any time to discuss suspicious or criminal activity or incidents taking place on the railway network. 
  • Emergency Contact Buttons are also present near the doors in all City network carriages so that customers can speak to the driver or guard in the event of an incident occurring on the train.

Do You Recognise This Person?
Passenger Information Displays


On the rail network you may recognise persons with whom the Queensland Police Service or Queensland Rail wish to speak to about an incident or matter with which they may be able to assist.

The Passenger Information Display system (PIDs) carries images similar to the  one  pictured right, from time to time.  The use of a persons image does not necessarily indicate that they are an offender - merely that Police or Rail Staff wish to speak with them about an incident that has occurred on the rail network.  The person may be a witness and may be able to provide additional information to help with an incident. During your travel - if you recognise any of these persons - we encourage you to let us know via either of our three communication mediums listed above. PIDs Sample Image
