Bus and train drivers have voted NOT to go into problem areas in the weeks leading up to Halloween.
The emergency motion was put to and passed by members of the National Bus and Rail Union.
They've taken the decision due to the increased levels of anti-social behaviour on public transport.
Bus and train drivers say they are concerned for their own safety and the welfare of passengers.

General Secretary of the NBRU, Dermot O'Leary says public transport operators and the government must take action:
"This is not industrial action in the normal way - this is the staff themselves saying that the companies they work for and the government have a duty of care to them and their passengers."
"They're not going to put themselves or their passengers in danger"
"There's no guarantee that we will wait for October for this to happen. It will be incident led."
