Request for information:
"I'm just getting in touch to see if there is any data available on bus driver abuse and what sort of things our drivers are facing, and whether or not this has increased recently? I'm aware a number of people are frustrated about timetable changes and delays and am wondering if any drivers have fallen victim to verbal or physical abuse recently. If possible, am I able to get this information?
I also understand there was a brawl on a Lower Hutt bus somewhat recently, and was wondering if GWRC are planning on putting protective barriers or equipping drivers with safety tools (eg. pepper spray, alarms, etc) in the wake of this incident?"
