Kollektivtrafik i storstad - undviker människor att resa på grund av otrygghet?
2003 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
A questionnaire, including questions pertaining to perceived attractiveness, feelings of unsafety and different types of risks connected to different transport modes (car, city bus, tram, regional bus, commuter train and subway), was filled out by 59 respondents. The results showed that perceived attractiveness might be affected by perceived risks and worry of being bothered, threatened or attacked by fellow passengers to a higher extent than perceived risks and worry of being involved in traffic accidents. Different circumstances, for instance bus stop etc being remotely situated, were considered to contribute to feelings of unsafety when walking to and waiting at the bus stop etc. When travelling with different public transport modes the participants stated that they feel unsafe if for example the drivers/personnel do not supervise their vehicle. Women stated to a higher extent than men that different cirsumstances contribute to feelings of unsafety when walking to and waiting at the bus stop etc, as well as when travelling with different public transport modes. A majority of the respondents stated that they avoid travelling with the red subwayline during nighttime, especially during weekends. The respondents stated that they had a more positive attitude towards tram than towards regional bus and commuter train, which was not the case in a similar study conducted in Norrköping. This result might be explained by a successful introduction of a new tramwayline (Tvärbanan) in Stockholm.
