Safety at Parow and Bellville stations have received a major boost thanks to the Safety Partnership programme between Metrorail, the Western Cape's departments of Community Safety, and Transport and Public Works, and other stakeholders. The initiative is building effective partnerships in the area through targeted interventions. Its aim is to support the Voortrekker Road Corridor Improvement District (VRCID) and create safer environments.

The partnership has already paved the way for pilot projects at Bellville and Parow transport interchanges that are enhancing the safety of commuters. As part of the project, 50 Chrysalis graduates have been deployed as Commuter Safety Ambassadors (CSA) at Bellville, Tygerberg and Parow stations.

An additional 200 safety personnel have been deployed on trains and stations in the Western Cape to boost existing security measures. "This pilot safety project embraces what is meant when we say that safety is everyone's responsibility. By building effective partnerships through targeted interventions we are working better together … to realise a whole-of-society approach in creating safer environments," Metrorail and the Western Cape departments of Community Safety, and Transport and Public Works said in a joint statement.
