In recent years, safety and security issues have widely known as key challenges to the public transport system. These issues have been studied in limited transportation planning studies to achieve a safe and secure transport system. Nevertheless, previous studies did not consider the impacts of terrorist attacks on the public bus. Therefore, such issues were critical challenges for the Afghan government to balance the infrastructures in Kabul City. The main objectives of this study are to evaluate the current usage and the perceptions of safety and security of public buses in the city. In this research, a quantitative method was applied, and the data were collected through a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was analyzed for descriptive statistics (frequency), and the secondary data were reviewed. The results highlighted that dependency on private transport was higher than the public bus. Also, it showed that residents regularly use public bus service for work and education purposes every day. They usually walk from their house to the bus stop more than a standard distance (400 m). In addition, users of public buses have unpleasant perceptions of safety and security. The current study is significantly vital for transportation relevant authorities and policymakers to improve the safety and security of public buses.
