The arson and explosion of buses in Hangzhou and Guangzhou have once again aroused people's thinking about public transport safety. How to ensure travel safety has become a hot topic of social discussion and has become one of the hotspots of recent media reports. In this regard, this paper summarizes the public security and public transport departments in Xiamen and Chengdu, which have had bus arson cases, focusing on the public transport safety measures introduced and implemented in these two places, hoping to provide some experience for other places to learn from.

Sichuan Provincial Public Security Fire Brigade has developed the first fire-proof bus in China. The shape of fire-proof bus is the same as that of ordinary bus. The biggest difference is that fire-proof safety protection system is added to the bus, and nine sprinklers are installed in the middle of the roof.

Chengdu summarizes the experience of dealing with "6.5" Bus Burning cases and interrupts the source of hazards from the system and management level

After the "6.5" Bus Burning case in Chengdu, Sichuan in 2009, Chengdu timely summarized and reflected on the causes of the case and the existing problems and loopholes, led by the Party Committee and the government, multi-sectoral linkage, from the system and management level, to comprehensively strengthen the control of dangerous sources of public transport.

Subsequently, the Chengdu Public Security Bureau, together with the Transportation Commission, security supervision and other departments, established a linkage mechanism for dealing with unexpected safety incidents. It clearly stipulated that when unexpected incidents occurred, the nearby street patrolmen and traffic policemen first rushed to the scene to rescue, protect the scene, coordinate the emergency health personnel to the scene, mobilize fire fighting, criminal police, traffic policemen, patrolmen, special police and local public security organs to deal with them.

In the aspect of strengthening the ability to find dangerous sources, Chengdu has focused on strengthening the construction of public transport security inspection and disposal team. After the "6.5" case, Chengdu openly recruited 1000 bus safety officers. After training, the public security organs allocated 58 key bus routes to the city by the bus group company to actively carry out safety precautions.
