Abstract:

A research gap exists in the study of crime specific to neighborhoods adjacent to transit stations. A body of data is available listing crime in those neighborhoods, but it is usually available in a form that impedes analysis of relationships between the neighborhood and the transit station--that is, the crime occurrences are tallied without concern as to how the offender traveled to his or her destination or without delineation of where exactly the crime occurred. It is hoped that transportation planners eventually will have data that can address the concerns of residents about potential increases in crime "due" to transit in areas designated for transit stations.
