Calif. bill requires human trafficking training for public transit agencies

Posted on September 18, 2018

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California legislature passed Assembly Bill 2034, which would require the state’s bus, rail, and light rail intercity transit agencies and businesses to train employees to recognize the signs of human trafficking and how to report possible trafficking to authorities, SmartCitiesDive reports.

The measure would amend an existing law, which requires businesses and transit authorities to post notices about human trafficking, however, the law does not require training on the topic.

If passed into law, intercity transit agencies will have to provide the human trafficking training starting on Jan. 1, 2021. The state would reimburse intercity transit agencies for training costs, which are expected to be small. With little resistance from the transit industry, the bill is expected to be signed by Gov. Brown. For the full story, click here.
