METRO, one of the safest transit systems of its size in the United States, is engaging its ridership in a new “Respect Is Mutual” safety campaign that aims to curb the rising number of assaults against bus operators.  

 

METRO’s top priority is the safety of its passengers and employees.  Violence against operators is a crime, a third degree felony, and puts the public in harm’s way. 

 

METRO is encouraging passengers and operators to be courteous and patient when riding public transit and has spelled out expectations for all involved.
