The main objective of this project is to examine issues of personal security of bus passengers. The project will review and evaluate current crime prevention measures and provide guidance to operators on appropriate measures (including new ones) in a format to be agreed.
The purpose of this project is to build on and update existing guidance to reduce crime and the fear of crime at bus stops, bus stations and on vehicle for staff and passengers.

Specifically, this project will review current levels of crime against passengers and staff, review and evaluate current crime prevention measures and provide guidance to operators on appropriate measures (including new ones) in a format to be agreed.
