Greenlink - Human Trafficking Awareness Baseline Data

Greenlink - Human Trafficking Awareness Baseline Data

Greenlink received a grant from the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Human Trafficking Awareness and Public Safety Initiative. Greenlink's project is an 18-month campaign that will include:

  • A survey and open-house charrette to better understand the public’s existing knowledge and perception of human trafficking in Greenville County
  • Three separate trainings for bus drivers to become more educated on human trafficking and its warning signs
  • A training video for all new hires to ensure training consistency for all Greenlink employees
  • Three human trafficking prevention trainings for the public
  • Two public safety round tables to encourage dialogue with Greenlink staff, customers, and law enforcement about ongoing safety concerns
  • The production of ads to post in the buses and at bus stop shelters
  • A large-scale public awareness event

This survey will be open until October 11. Results will be shared at two open-house charrettes scheduled for:

  • Tuesday, November 10 from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m.
  • Thursday, November 12 from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m.
  • In addition to the two in-person open-house events, a recorded video covering the material will be posted on RideGreenlink.com/HumanTrafficking beginning November 9.
