Abstract [en]

A survey has been performed on departing middle- and long-distance train passengers on a selection of 14 since 1990 new or rebuilt railway stations in Sweden. The passengers’ rating of security was one of the questions included in the survey, which dealt with several aspects on localization of the station. A linear regression analysis (OLS) revealed that the Perceived Station Security (PSS) Index is explained by a number of physical factors in the station environment. Individual or socio-economic factors are however too vague to be significant. The model is significant but the model fit is low and the results should be interpreted as preliminary. Examples of environmental factors that increase the PSS are if the station has built-in stairs between station building and platforms and if there is a café or restaurant with seating in the station, while reconstruction in progress decreases the PSS. The distance to the city or local centre has an effect, and peripheral stations in general have a lower PSS than centrally located.
