Abstract

Specific forms of crime occurring on trains, trams and underground transport systems, buses and bus shelters, taxis, in airports and on aircraft are explored. Successful techniques employed as crime prevention measures in Australia and overseas are described. Situational crime prevention strategies, modeled on three strands of contemporary criminology (rational choice perspective, opportunity theory, and environmental criminology), are emphasised. Each chapter is separately indexed.

Keywords: public transport, crime prevention
