Mayor answers to London
Question by Roger Evans
Will it also be a priority on the new buses to design out crime because crime and anti social behaviour and vandalism blighted the service under your predecessor and put off a lot of people from using it? Will that be a priority too?
Answer by Boris Johnson (1st Term)
Of course I want buses to be much, much safer and that was one of the priorities on which I think we were elected. One of the first things we have done is to double the Safer Transport Teams and by the end of that particular programme we are going to have more uniformed people on the buses communicating a sense of safety and security than at any time in the last 25 years. I do want to see buses and bus journeys that are far safer.
