Newton, Andrew D. (2008) A Study of Bus Route Crime Risk in Urban Areas: The Changing Environs of a Bus Journey. Built Environment, 34 (1). pp. 88-103. ISSN 02637960

This study examines the risk of bus route crime and how it is influenced by environmental characteristics along the bus corridor. These include changing levels of crime risk, socio-economic influences, and changes to the physical infrastructure including land use. Three urban case study areas in the UK are used. The findings suggest that the risk of bus crime along a journey is influenced by overall levels of crime (for specific categories of crime only), that the level of risk increases in high crime areas, and that risk is raised further when there are more stops along that route. Prevention implications of these findings are discussed, and avenues for future research are presented.
