DETROIT (WWJ) – There’s a new effort underway to make Detroit buses safer, and it doesn’t involve the police.
The national citizens patrol group, The Guardian Angels, has announced it will confront DDOT bus safety issues. Between 7am and 12:00 noon on Monday, at the Rosa Parks bus terminal, Guardian Angels representatives are expected to start recruiting new members for the organization.
Afterwards, members plan to ride and patrol buses around Detroit from noon until 11 p.m. Monday.
This effort to make Detroit buses safer follows last week’s rally and sick-out by DDOT drivers, demonstrating against on-the-job attacks, which includes two drivers reportedly being stabbed.
Detroit police say officers will soon be put on DDOT buses, along with new security cameras.
