Many feel unsafe on night buses

Bus and Subway Protest Against Violence

All public transportation in Sweden came to a halt for 2 minutes at noon Friday.

The stop was a protest against increased violence and threats against bus drivers, ticket-takers, and other personnel. It was a joint action by both employers and unions.

Bus drivers have called for a change in the system so that they will no longer have to handle money, and for the installation of security cameras to identify trouble-makers.
