Changing Public Perceptions of Crime and Public Transportation
Track: Public Transit
Authors: Dylan Coolbaugh
Perceptions of public transportation hinder ridership for cities. The area of study will be Greensboro, North Carolina because there are counties that vary with access and unemployment and that have gentrified in recent years. The purpose of this research is to identify triggers of fear and determine how existing infrastructure should be modified to change perceptions. Expected results for this research will likely show relationships that will alter perceptions of public transportation.
