A representative for HSR drivers is looking forward to the installation of security cameras.
Eric Tuck, President of Local 107 of the Amalgamated Transit Union, says it will be a “critical tool” for their safety.
Council set aside 1.7 million dollars to outfit the fleet with cameras in the 2016 capital budget.
Tuck believes they are well overdue and will start to appear in city busses within a month or two.
The latest assault against the HSR operator happened back on Wednesday when a driver was punched in the face by an unhappy passenger near Queenston and Nash.
At this point, no arrest has been made.
