Security and Safety
Security is a relatively new challenge in the context of public transport. Security addresses problems caused intentionally. This differs from safety which address- es problems caused accidentally.
The UITP Security Commission is made up of public transport security practitioners and offers support to UITP members on security matters. Its role is to col- lect and disseminate knowledge, experience and best practices on urban public transport security. It propos- es UITP’s positions and priorities on security vis-a-vis other stakeholders and partners.
