VANDALISM AND PASSENGER SECURITY IN THE TRANSIT INDUSTRY

This paper summarizes the goals and objectives of an Urban Mass Transportation Administration project designed to measure the scope of transit-related vandalism and crime in terms of its characteristics and costs. The discussion includes all current efforts to reduce vandalism, passenger harassment, and crime in terms of vandal-resistant materials and equipment; community, social, and educational programs; and deterrent, protection, surveillance, and apprehension systems. The paper also discusses problems of institutional cooperation and conflict as well as current and planned demonstration projects designed to measure the effectiveness and costs of particular procedures and techniques for deterring vandalism and crime.
