A friend of mine is a store manager for a national chain of crafts stores. The observation in retail is that stores closest to a limited access highway on-ramp have the greatest occurrences of robberies and shoplifters, because the assailants can quickly access the highway and cover significant ground in short time, as well as having a variety of getaway paths at subsequent exits passed on the highway.

The stigma of transit as a "getaway vehicle," is so completely misguided and rooted in ignorance. I have to actually resist commenting on online news stories about robberies in areas with no transit access "Wait, how could that happen? There is no bus service there!"
