|New safety measures for Transit operators are being put in place |
this week in Prince Rupert
In an announcement from BC Transit last week, a Northwest to do list was outlined, with work set for this week for Prince Rupert/Port Edward, as well as for the transit systems in Terrace and Kitimat with the work to be completed by the end of the month.
The new look will see a full driver door installed to enhance the safety for the operators.The full driver door is a movable barrier situated to the right of the driver’s seat near the fare box and is designed to increase protection for our drivers. It includes a transparent piece of laminated tempered glass with anti-glare coating and metal base. The full driver door windows can be adjusted to account for sightlines associated with different seat positions.
