The public transport network across the West Midlands continues to be one of the safest in the U.K. Reductions have been seen in virtually all of the key crime types, with crimes against the person down year on year on bus, rail and tram since 2008.  Furthermore, with a focus on tackling anti-social behaviour in recent years, surveys from the independent watchdog, “Transport Focus” show that passenger perception of safety on buses across the region has improved by 10% over the last 3 years.
