Mt Druitt - St Marys Standard - Bus Driver Safety Fears As Man Has Been Charged - Last Week - We have Been Lobbying For Some Of These Measures!

Please find the 2 articles that the Mount Druitt - St Marys Standard has produced in relation to the arrest on the Bidwill anti-social attack on a Busways Bus Drive - and the response from the bus drivers. There seems to be finger pointing on the two way radio. I must admit that most of the time I'm on a bus I'm sure that the Two-way radio is available for use. maybe bus drivers must checkpoint their two way radios when entering and leaving the bus depot - this could be implemented for the future.

We have been pressing for the measures mentioned - excepting we are extending these to  having 'Pre-pay' buses and  the actual hiring 24 hour around the clock of undercover and uniformed police similar Transit Officers that are employed for train travel.
