This project will examine the association between the number of passengers in presence, crime and perceptions of safety at public transit stations. It aims to better understand factors that deter individuals from utilising public transport to inform transport policy and network design. The outcomes will identify how the presence of other passengers combined with features of the station and the surrounding neighbourhood are associated with the occurrence of crime and passengers’ perceptions of safety at public train stations.
