Public Transport: South East

Volume 501: debated on Tuesday 24 November 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport whether his Department has made a recent assessment of the level of violence and abusive behaviour on public transport in (a) Milton Keynes and (b) the South East. (300275)

The Department for Transport (DFT) does not routinely assess regional public transport crime or antisocial behaviour data.

The British Transport police collect crime data for crime committed at rail stations and on trains, as well as London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, Glasgow Subway, Croydon Tramlink and the Midland Metro tram system.

Crime committed at bus stations and on buses may be collected by the bus operator, local authority, Passenger Transport Executive and/or local police. These data are not collated or assessed at a national level by DFT.
