WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Winnipeg Transit has launched a six-month pilot project to test protective shields for bus drivers, CBC News reported.

Two models of safety barriers will tested, one from Winnipeg's New Flyer Industries and one from Wisconsin-based Arow Global. Each shield costs about $5,000 to purchase and install, the report said.

Once the pilot project is complete, Winnipeg Transit will prepare a report discussing the findings of the test period and recommending next steps for consideration, according to the agency.
