Answer for Sexual Offences on the Bus Network - Time of Day

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Analysis of bus-related crime data held by TfL shows that there were 1,133* bus-related sexual offences committed between 1 January 2013 and 31 December 2014.  The table below provides a breakdown of bus-related sexual offences by the time of day they were committed.

You will see from the table that more offences are committing during morning and afternoon rush hours than at any other time.

*Please note that there is a slight difference between these figures and official bus-related sexual offence figures reported elsewhere. Official crime figures are based on the recorded date of an offence and not when the offence was committed.
