The below table shows the number of recorded crimes on London bus routes south of the river during 2018/2019.

It’s important to note that there are 21 boroughs north of the river, compared to 12 boroughs south of the river. A number of heavily used sections of the network, such as Westminster and the City of London, are north of the river. The transport infrastructure and passenger volumes are very different, which means it is not possible to make direct comparisons between levels of crime in north and south London.
