CUTA calls for stiffer sentences on operator attacks

Posted on April 1, 2014

VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Sun reported that the Canadian Urban Transit Association (CUTA) is asking Canada’s justice minister for stronger sentences for people who attack bus drivers.

The effort comes on the heels of a bus driver being punched in the face last week. That was the second unprovoked assault on a bus driver in Vancouver in a month, according to the newspaper. This latest attack brings the number of reported assaults in the Vancouver region so far this year to 42.

As CUTA members continue to push for stronger sentences, Vancouver’s Coast Mountain Bus Co. launched a new campaign, "Don’t Touch Our Operators," on Monday. For the full story, click here.
