Latest Attacks Cause Transport Union in NSW to Call for Higher Security

The Rail Tram and Bus Union has called for high security measures on New South Wales transport vehicles in response to the latest attacks.

A passenger who caught the wrong bus by mistake was caught on camera racially abusing the driver before spitting on him. This proved to be the last straw for the Union whose members are increasingly concerned about their own safety. 

Security screens fitted to all buses in the network and dedicated transit officers on the buses are two measures that the Union is pushing to have introduced.
