CHICAGO — The Chicago Transit Authority is launching a new anti-harassment campaign called “If It’s Unwanted, It’s Harassment.”

The public information campaign was developed to promote awareness that the CTA does not tolerate harassment on its trains, buses or other CTA property.

The CTA says it will not tolerate touching, rude comments and leering on its fleet and it encourages customers to report incidents that they experience or witness.

The CTA plans to educate riders on what to do if they believe they are victims of harassment.

The new campaign features a series of messages that will appear on buses, trains and at train stations.
