Public Transportation Safety Among University Students

The project tackles user safety and transit system performance evaluation and optimization. It addresses how perceptions of personal safety may vary among students and how they affect transit ridership and use. It examines how safety issues on transit are currently addressed by transit operators and what improvements can be made. The study's ultimate goals are to improve the transportation safety of college students, examine and respond to possible inequities among student groups, and possibly increase transit ridership among students.
