Preventing Driver Assault Podcast

Resource Overview: This podcast series is a helpful look at conflict in and on our community transit systems. We hope that by starting a discussion that provides helpful tips and ideas, transit drivers can do their jobs safely in every community they serve: urban, rural and tribal transit environments.

These nine targeted podcasts are 15 minutes in length and can be used in driver safety meetings, to inform policymakers and to educate the entire transit community in how to ensure our drivers are safe. The podcasts feature a variety of transit leaders, drivers, trainers, and psychologists who focus on the following topics:

  • What is Assault?
  • Pro-Active Prevention
  • Training Tools
  • The Importance of Community Connections
  • Supporting All Involved

Target Audience: Transit drivers, supervisors, managers, customer service representatives, policymakers, elected officials.
