|Judul||:||Female User And Level of Safety At Light Rail Transit Station, Petaling Jaya, Selangor|
Public transportation is an important way of moving people or goods from one point to another point of destination. Light Rail Transit (LRT), Monorail, taxis and buses are currently a good choice for people, especially those who work at the city centre. Lately, the light rail transit was seen to be preferable by all, especially in the area with heavy traffic congestions. The increased number of vehicles heading to the city centre day by day causes the delay in traffic movement on the road. This can easily be seen especially in the morning when people are mobile to work and at the evening time after the working hour. Choosing the public transportation as LRT has helped much in reducing the congestions in many roads to the city centre. Apart from the intention to ensure the minimum road congestion, the other concern is the safety parameter. The safety level among the passengers must also become a priority matter especially for female users. Nowadays, the female users were seen to become more aggressive using the LRT to work, shopping, travelling short distances or for weekend sight-seeing. This is a good sign in the transportation sector as people had noticed that using the LRT would help to reduce mileage, cost, reduce stress, and promote a healthy lifestyle. This research will investigate the safety level among female users in using the LRT in selected destinations and to identify the unsafe location along the walking trails from or to LRT station.
