Event though, according to different recent studies, the European public transport is considered very safe, people often perceive stations or trams, subways, buses, as highly dangerous places and experience situations of insecurity and fear. This type condition mainly happens to vulnerable groups such women, elderly and people living with disabilities, plus passengers traveling along feel more insecure. It is also noted that passengers feel less secure at night or while waiting at subway stations. Besides noise, garbage, or negative reporting increase the feeling of discomfort in public transport.
Technology, light, art & design and presence of security personnel at stations increase subjective feeling of security.
