• If possible use well lit, busy stops.
• Stay alert! Do not leave yourself noticeably vulnerable to theft by dozing
• A crowded bus is an environment for pick pockets. Carry your wallet in an
  inside coat pocket or a front pants pocket. Carry your bag closely, not
  dangling from its strap.

• Take a seat near the driver if another passenger is bothering you.

• If someone harasses you  on a bus or subway, do not be embarrassed to
  loudly say "Leave me alone!"

• Watch who exits with you. if you feel uneasy walk directly to a place
  where there are other people.

• If something or someone at your intended stop raises your concern about
  personal safety, wait until the next stop to get off.
