Better Than That Campaign

TfGM has launched the next phase of their youth-facing antisocial behaviour (ASB) campaign, to support ongoing efforts by the TravelSafe Partnership (TSP) to help all passengers feel safe whilst travelling on public transport.

ASB takes many forms, with the most dangerous relating to public transport being buses, trains or trams being hit by objects such as bricks. This can result in services being diverted or withdrawn from certain routes, as well as posing a risk to the safety of drivers and passengers. However, many young people may be unaware that the way they act by themselves or in a group at bus or tram stops and stations, such as being noisy or abusive in groups, can also cause distress to other people, including peers and transport staff.

Better Than That uses the first-hand experiences of young people who have been involved in ASB, or who have been affected by it, and asks them to put themselves in the shoes of others before they behave in a way that may be seen as intimidating or threatening. As part of the Better Than That campaign, Foundation 92 have been speaking to young people at their Little Hulton community hub about their own experiences of ASB.
