Melbourne targets rail crime A Crime Stoppers operation is being introduced on Melbourne, Australia’s rail system in response to a rise in crime at stations and commuters’ concerns with safety. Boards carrying the images of offenders and details of crimes committed on trains and stations will be placed at stations, along with safety tips and the Crime Stoppers number. The initiative follows an increase in crimes in and around transit of more than 50% in the past five years, according to The Sunday Age. 150 buses in Jordan equipped with TVs About 150 buses in Amman, Jordan, are equipped with televisions that provide news, routes and advertisements. Two televisions were installed in each bus. They run campaigns by several private sector companies advertising their products, as well as public service announcements. The service is available on buses operated by the private sector. In Amman alone, 900,000 passengers board the capital bus network daily, according to the Jordan Times.
