In San Francisco, a dozen community escorts will be available to accompany Muni riders home from major transit stops in the Bayview and Visitacion Valley neighborhoods, two districts that are high crime areas.

Safety teams in neon yellow vests and armed with cell phones will be waiting for passengers getting off at the neighborhood Muni stations.

The escorts are funded through a program created from federal stimulus money.
