SEPTA Driver Shot

A SEPTA bus driver was shot last night. The transit organization is backing proposed legislation, PA Senate Bill 1149 that would add bus operators to the protected class of workers such as police officers and firefighters, and upgrade assaults against them to aggravated assaults. I don't know if this would include train operators as well. As a long-time SEPTA rider let me add that I'm not only dependent on the transit workers but think the great majority do a great job.
