BRONX, N.Y. – Four teens attacked a bus driver in the Bronx. The incident occurred when a group of four young men was exiting a B60 bus last Saturday June 9th in Eastchester. The suspects are between 16 and 19 years old and police have video of the incident.

Transport Workers Union Local 100 President Tony Utano responded to the incident in a statement saying, “This attack is absolutely unacceptable, and we urge anyone who recognizes these individuals to contact the police. This attack vividly highlights why Liberty Lines buses need protective partitions installed.”

While MTA buses have partitions that are supposed to protect drivers. Other bus companies do not have this protetive shield. This bus route started in Westchester County and Executive Rob Astorino denied a request for similar shields on the Bee-Line buses, according to TWU Local 100.
