Public transport security in stations: prevention, responding and recovering in the face of terrorism

This document provides guidance for the improvement of security in public transport stations and the development of appropriate security plans. Since the challenge of terrorism is evolving, the list of recommendations presented is not meant to be exhaustive. The purpose of this paper is to allow transport operators or transporters to improve overall station security by providing a menu of tested options selected by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) Security Commission to prevent attacks, respond to incidents and restore traffic operations and public confidence. It summarises current knowledge and suggests a series of approaches and measures that are good practice and have proven their benefit. These recommendations should be translated into the local and operational context and are meant to improve existing strategies and tactics, not replace them.
