Bus-related crime data is extracted from the Metropolitan Police Service crime reporting system, using a query that searches for the word bus, bus stop etc. For this reason, it may include some crimes that did not occur on the network. Checks of the data have showed it to be over 90% accurate.

The figures do not include crimes that have not been reported to the police or those that the police decide not to record. Crime figures reported here are based on monthly snapshot figures and may be subject to revision in future updates.
