The safety of our employees and customers is a top priority. On June 27, 2018, Brampton City Council unanimously approved recommendations to move forward with the installation of “slider” style Operator safety shields on the existing fleet and all new buses purchased moving forward. Although no shield will prevent all assaults from occurring, the slider shield will:
- Restrict intentional or unintentional access by customers to the Operator's area;
- Reduce the severity of, and where possible, prevent certain types of assaults from occurring in the first place;
- Provide enhanced protection and flexibility for Operators, and improved safety for customers; and,
- Allow for the continued delivery of high-quality customer service that our customers are used to receiving.
