Another Metro Vancouver bus driver has been assaulted.
Gavin Davies with the bus drivers’ union says a driver was punched this morning on the 3-24 route on 132nd near 69th.
He says a passenger started pointing out his stop to the bus driver even after the driver told him they weren’t there yet.
He says,, “The passenger then spoke again — ‘Oh, my stop! my stop!” and as he did it a second time, the operator was approached and stopped, the passenger punched him in the mouth.”
Davies says the driver suffered a split lip that will likely need stitches, while police are looking for the suspect.
