Incidents of sexual harassment on London’s Trains and buses are on the rised. According to Transport for London department report, 1,813 incidents of sexual harassment were reported in trains and buses within one year.
Transport for London said that despite the awareness campaign, 1,813 incidents were reported this year compared to before. Most of the incidents of sexual harassment took place during rush timing hours.
According to Transport for London, despite the campaign, less than 50% of women and girls report incidents of sexual harassment. The campaign of zero tolerance against women will continue in 2023 as well.
