The extent of feeling unsafe when using public transport is relatively high. Around 50 per cent of public transport users have felt unsafe in connection with a journey by public transport. Even though the vast majority have only experienced a lack of safety from time to time, this can lead to people using public transport less than they would wish to, and they then either go by car or limit their travels. ·In order to reduce the extent of feeling unsafe on journeys by public transport it may be necessary to implement measures. The measures should be in a "whole journey" perspective. Public transport users experience feeling unsafe both on the way to and from the bus stop, at the bus stop and on the vehicle itself. It is therefore necessary that the different authorities, departments and companies which are responsible for the different elements of the journey should work together so that public transport users can feel that their journey is safe from start to finish.
