Upplevd trygghet vid resor med kollektiva transportmedel
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2002 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)Alternative title
Perceived security in public transport (English)
Abstract [sv]

Det huvudsakliga syftet var att studera vilka skillnader och likheter som finns mellan olika transportmedel (bil, stadsbuss, spårvagn, regionalbuss och pendeltåg) med avseende på upplevd attraktivitet, trygghet och olika typer av upplevda risker förknippade med de olika transportmedlen. Ytterligare ett syfte var att studera i vilken utsträckning olika omständigheter (exempelvis belysning) bidrar till känslor av otrygghet i samband med resor med kollektiva transportmedel. Slutligen var ett syfte att studera eventuella effekter av olika individegenskaper (såsom demografiska variabler). Ett frågeformulär konstruerades för dessa syften och fylldes i av 58 personer. Resultaten visade att människor upplever trygghet och attraktivitet olika hos olika transportmedel. En viktig skiljelinje verkar gå mellan privatbil och kollektiva transportmedel. Upplevd attraktivitet verkar i högre utsträckning påverkas av upplevda risker och oro för att bli utsatt för besvärande situationer, hot eller våld än upplevda risker för att råka ut för trafikolyckor. Olika individegenskaper kan ha en viss inverkan på upplevd attraktivitet, trygghet och risk.

Abstract [en]

The main objective was to study differences and similarities between different transport modes (car, city bus, tram, regional bus and commuter train) concerning perceived attractiveness, feelings of safety and different types of risks connected to the different transport modes. Another aim was to study to what extent different circumstances (for instance lighting) contribute to feelings of insecurity while travelling with different public transport modes. Finally, an objective was to study possible effects of individual differences (such as demographic variables). A questionnaire was constructed for these purposes and was filled out by 58 respondents. The results showed that people perceive feelings of safety and attractiveness to be different depending on the transport mode. People perceive private cars to be more attractive than public transport modes. Perceived attractiveness might be affected by perceived risks and worry of being bothered, threatened and violated by fellow passengers to a higher extent than perceived risks and worry of being involved in traffic accidents while travelling. Individual differences might have an affect on perceived attractiveness, feelings of safety and perceptions of risks.
