It is reported that the special seat is normally set at the first row on the right side of bus driver’s seat, with slogans put above the seat, saying that “if you find passengers quarreling or fighting with the bus driver, please do not hesitate to stop them.”(Photo: VCG)
The bus guard seat is not compulsory but voluntary for everyone. The bus guard should be between 18 and 65 years old. Anyone who would like to take the responsibility could be the bus guard. (Photo: VCG)
