(HealthDay News) — Riding on the subway alone, especially at off hours, can be a nerve-wracking experience.

To help you stay out of harm’s way, Hunter College suggests:

  • Keep purses and backpacks secure at all times.
  • Do not display money or jewelry in public places.
  • Never carry a wallet in your back pocket.
  • Be suspicious of anyone approaching you.
  • When traveling at off hours, ride in cars with a conductor.
  • When waiting for a train late at night, stand in a safe spot.
