Security and safety for millions of commuters
Every day millions of people all over the world use public transport systems to travel to and from work, visit their friends and take part in leisure activities. In New York City and its surroundings, eight million people a day use the subway, buses and suburban trains. Three million people a day pass through Shinjoku Station in Tokyo, the busiest railway station in the world. City transport systems are not just travel routes but are the workplaces of thousands of people. The authorities running the systems are responsible for the lives and security of everyone who uses them. If an accident occurs, people must be able to get out easily and quickly.
