Vandalising Melbourne's Public Transport System

Vandalising Public Transport - Graffiti Removal and Prevention

Graffiti is a part of our everyday city life. Vandalism and graffiti are common on most of the developed world’s urban railway and transit system.

In May this year it was reported that 52 offenders were charged in Melbourne by the police under an anti-graffiti campaign called “Operation Deep Clean”. The X/Trapolis trains have installed Anti Graffiti Film which makes removal of graffiti very quick and easy to clean.

Most world-wide transportation systems exhibit similar characteristics in graffiti and vandalism including the type of damage done (ie, tagging, scratching windows). It is predominantly juvenile offenders amongst those apprehended, the greater frequency of damage in off-peak hours and unsupervised areas. Some think that they are simply decorating barren railway areas.

Unfortunately, the most damage that vandalism does is in staff morale and passengers’ perceptions of the safety and comfort of the service. To those in authority the issue of controlling graffiti and vandalism is not only one of protecting public property but also of making public transportation systems appear less dangerous and unpleasant areas for possible users. It is clear that the community will not tolerate widespread graffiti and vandalism.

Unscratch The Surface has contributed to making Victoria look cleaner and feel safer, after resurfacing windows on the V/Line Trains. The windows were incredibly scratched and we were able to restore the windows to new.
