The Financial Impact of Vandalism on Public Transportation in France
Vandalism on public transportation facilities has a considerable financial impact. In France, for instance, the cost of vandalism on public transportation networks amounted to 10.2 million euros in 2020. While this was the lowest in the past decade, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it still represents a significant financial burden. Such costs are often borne by the public in the form of increased ticket prices or taxes. Addressing vandalism proactively can not only enhance the user experience but also save millions in repair and replacement costs.
