Millions of people rely on London's transport system – we want to make it as crime-free and safe as possible.
London's transport system is a low crime environment. The risk of becoming a victim of crime is at its lowest level since recording began five years ago.
Since being elected, the Mayor has implemented a range of initiatives to improve safety – from introducing over 500 additional patrolling officers to banning alcohol consumption on public transport. These initiatives have delivered results and we are determined to build on them.
- Since 2007 there has been a 30% reduction in the volume of bus-related crime in London
- During 2010 there were 10,000 fewer offences on the bus network than in 2007
- Bus-related robbery has fallen 47% in the same period – over 2300 fewer robbery offences
