    Police have joined forces with Auckland transport, to combat an increase in abuse towards bus drivers

    Police have joined forces with Auckland transport, to combat an increase in abuse towards bus drivers


    Since 1 August there has been 35 reported incidents involving abuse or aggression towards Auckland's bus drivers - despite low patronage due to Alert Level 4.

    Mayor Phil Goff says drivers working in level 4 are doing the community a service, and don't deserve the abuse.

    Police will board buses and patrol stops, as well as provide de-escalation training to drivers.
