CIVITAS Case Study - Anti-vandalism in Public Transport in Gdansk

Like most medium-sized or large cities, Gdansk struggles with regular acts of vandalism and anti-social behaviour in and around public transport vehicles. Within CIVITAS, the city introduced several measures aimed at improving the image of public transport by ensuring the comfort and security of users. The anti-vandalism strategy included awareness-raising meetings with school children, training for drivers on effective methods of dealing with difficult passengers, introducing close-circuit television (CCTV) monitoring on a large scale and reinforcing a long-running ‘clean public transport stops’ campaign.
