The union representing Coast Mountain bus drivers says transit police are finally listening and starting to put officers on buses.
Canadian Autoworkers Union local 111 president Don Macleod says it's a change for the better and welcome by the drivers who have for years been asking for police to patrol the buses and the bus loops.
"We did meet with the chief of police and I believe the chief recognizes it makes sense to implement more of his personel onto the bus system we do get daily reports now on their actions out there."
Macleod says it's a good start but drivers would like to see more officers on board their coaches not only for their protection but passengers too.
