If not the Ghost Busters… Who Are You Going to Call?

TfL and the Met demonstrate a proactive approach to ensuring the safety and well-being of passengers, staff and the public particularly at night-time.

In the first 4 weeks of the trial

- 41 passengers provided with safeguarding assistance

- 47 passengers removed for being threatening and obstructive

- 82 people denied access to the network due to behaviour issues

- 424 people accepted advice then allowed to continue journeys

Whilst the presence of night and daytime patrols will provide safety and reassurance, what are you doing to ensure your safety when travelling?

Here are several measures you can take to manage your own safety:

1. Stay aware of your surroundings!

2. Plan your journey.

3. Share your plans with trusted contacts.

4. (please) Trust your instincts

5. Stay connected – keep phone charged and use safety apps.

6. Travel in groups (where possible)

7. Attend safety classes - where prevention is the key message!

These practical measures can enhance your safety when travelling alone or in groups.

Lack of CCTV coverage, particularly in remote areas, is a particular concern, but

A big acknowledgement to TfL and the Mets for putting CCTV into bus shelters and deploying staff to patrol community areas, particularly at night-time.

REMEMBER – if you need to raise the alarm, who’s coming, how long are they going to take and what are you going to do until help arrives?
