Bus Drivers are assaulted more than you think. The last two was caught on video so TV love that.

So three derailments from the Blue Line, and one derailment from the Green Line. Is that a good safety record?
Yes, because it is my understanding that none of the derailments was operator error. If they were than I would be concerned.

Now i'm curious, does the driver have to keep switching from end to end each run? Or does he get to drive backwards one run? Doubt they would have two driv...

Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

New LRV must have arrived. Metro Transit bought 3 or 4 LRVs for the Super Bowl. I do not believe they are the Type 3.
