Trade Union: In View of Violence, allow Only Electronic Payment on Buses

The trade union FNV wants to abolish all cash payments on buses and only allow electronic payments. This is in view of violence on buses. Since the beginning of 2013, 6 bus drivers have already been robbed in violent encounters, sometimes under the threat of guns or knives. The last victim had paint sprayed in his face, thereafter, the robber took his cash register. In the town of Almere, a number of bus drivers protested against the violence for some time by no longer taking money and tickets into the bus. This was already two years ago.
