Passenger Safety on the TTC: Rider Perspectives

The last month or so has been a nightmare for the TTC. Putting aside for a moment all of the nagging issues that plague the system (like union strife, funding woes, technical problems, service inadequacies, etc.), the topic on everyone's mind of late is passenger safety. And in light of what's gone on in recent weeks, that's pretty much undeniably justified.

We've seen a brazen shooting at a crowded Osgoode Station, unsuspecting teens pushed in front of a moving train, armed robberies at collector booths, a stabbing at Wilson Station, and this afternoon another shocking mid-day shooting went down aboard a bus near Oakwood & St. Clair.

How is all of this violence affecting passengers perceptions? Their use of the transit system?
