Public Transportation Safety Among University Students

This study focuses on the sexual harassment experiences of university students during their public transit journeys. The authors focus on university students because this group is typically more transit dependent than the general public, and possibly because of their age, more vulnerable to victimization from sexual harassment than other adults. Focusing on Los Angeles, they examine the transit safety concerns and sexual harassment experiences of students at three local universities: University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA), and California State University, Northridge (CSUN). The authors inquire how these experiences may vary by gender or other individual characteristics; how they affect the student choices about using transit; and what type of precautions and behavioral and travel adaptations students usually take.
