Surveillance may be increased and guardianship better promoted among bus stop locations that are placed in areas of low visibility or weak territorial social control. Thus, a thorough analysis of the crime location is an important component for utilizing routine activities theory and situational crime prevention. Increasing guardianship and limiting the vulnerability of targets is the basis for situational crime prevention.

The roots of spatial crime analysis began with early French mapping in the early 19th Century and 100 years later in the United States with the Chicago School ecological research. Criticisms of the Chicago School led to other techniques for conducting social area research, which were followed by the 15 16 Policing Public Transportation environmental design movement. The environmental design movement was preceded by the spatial school with relevant analysis of street and traffic flow in terms of conducting research on bus stop locations.
