  • The TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) has recently experienced another incident of violence within its premises. Two employees were reportedly attacked on a bus by a group of 10 to 15 youths in what has been described as a swarming style attack. This incident took place near Kennedy and Marion Roads in Scarborough at around 3:35 pm yesterday afternoon. Although the workers did not sustain life-threatening injuries, they were deeply shaken up by the incident. Additionally, a third worker, who was a bus driver, was also traumatized. The TTC has condemned this despicable act and is currently investigating the incident.This incident adds to the growing concern of safety for TTC employees. Just days prior, a bus operator was shot with a BB gun while taking over a bus in the Markham Road and Progress Avenue area. Furthermore, a TTC operator was assaulted and robbed by a masked male while on duty at the Long Branch Loop in Etobicoke last month. Such incidents are not only alarming but also raise questions about the safety measures in place for TTC employees.The incident has sparked fear and worry among both TTC employees and community members. Many express their shock and concern regarding the increasing frequency of such attacks. Employees who previously felt secure while going to work now worry about their safety. The TTC must prioritize the well-being of its employees and take appropriate measures to ensure their safety and security.
