Kollektivtrafik i storstad -: undviker människor att resa på grund av otrygghet?

Abstract [en]

A questionnaire, including questions pertaining to perceived attractiveness, feelings of unsafety and different types of risks connected to different transport modes (car, city bus, tram, regional bus, commuter train and subway), was filled out by 59 respondents. The results showed that perceived attractiveness might be affected by perceived risks and worry of being bothered, threatened or attacked by fellow passengers to a higher extent than perceived risks and worry of being involved in traffic accidents. Different circumstances, for instance the bus stop etc being remotely situated, were considered to contribute to feelings of unsafety when walking to and waiting at the bus stop etc. When travelling with different public transport modes the participants stated that they feel unsafe if for example drivers/personnel do not supervise their vehicle. Women stated to a higher extent than men that different circumstances contribute to feelings of unsafety when walking to and waiting at the bus stop etc. as well as when travelling with different public transport modes. A majority of the respondents stated that they avoid travelling with the red subway-line during night-time, especially during weekends. The respondents stated that they had a more positive attitude towards tram than towards regional bus and commuter train, which was not the case in a similar study conducted in Norrköping. This result might be explained by a successful introduction of a new tramway-line (Tvärbanan) in Stockholm.

Abstract [sv]

Ett frågeformulär, som innehöll frågor om upplevd attraktivitet, otrygghet och olika typer av risker förknippade med olika transportmedel (bil, stadsbuss, spårvagn, regionalbuss, pendeltåg och tunnelbana), fylldes i av 59 personer som besökte ett bibliotek i Stockholm. Resultaten visade att upplevd attraktivitet verkar påverkas i högre utsträckning 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 omständigheter, exempelvis att hållplatsen är avsides belägen, ansågs bidra i hög utsträckning till känslor av otrygghet när man går till respektive väntar vid en hållplats. Vid resor med kollektiva transportmedel känner man sig särskilt otrygg om exempelvis förare/personal har dålig uppsikt över fordonet. Kvinnor uppgav i högre utsträckning än män att olika omständigheter bidrar till känslor av otrygghet. Flertalet respondenter uppgav att de undviker att resa med tunnelbana röd linje under kvällar, särskilt på helger. Respondenterna uppgav att de hade en positivare attityd till spårvagn än till regionalbuss och pendeltåg, vilket inte var fallet i en motsvarande studie i Norrköping. Detta resultat kan förklaras av en väl fungerande introducering av Tvärbanan i Stockholm
