BROOKLYN – MTA workers rallied outside of the Transport Workers Union building on Livingston Street in an effort to get increased security for unruly and violent passengers.

The union says the number of reported assaults on workers for the first half of this year is nearing the total reported assaults for the entirety of last year. Workers say passengers spit on, hit and verbally assault them, and they are tired of having their lives put at risk.

One Brooklyn bus driver said a man threatened to shoot him, then attacked him while he was driving on May 15.
