      Albany Transit kicks off safety initiative

      The Albany Transit hosted their second event of the year to kick off their safety initiative program Friday Afternoon.

      The initiative is called Safety Is Priority 1 and will educate drivers and passengers on safety issues like; distracting drivers, holding the hand rail and straps, and standing up on the bus.

      David Hamilton, Director of Transit, says this initiative will also include classroom and behind the wheel training for drivers and will run all year long.

      Hamilton adds drivers will wear their "Safety is Priority 1" t-shirts the first Friday or every month.
