LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – The recent violence in Louisville has some on edge.

'From the deadly stabbing on a TARC bus to two passengers threatening a driver with guns, those who use public transportation want to know that they’re safe.

Jonathan Dooley, Almagamated Transit Union President, says he wants to know that employees are safe as well.

“I just had a meeting with the safety director and expressed our concerns for the union for our employees and also for the passengers.  It’s a community type of organization so we're concerned about everybody's safety,” he said. “We think the buses should be a safe place.  They’re labeled a safe place and we want them to be those safe places.”

The two passengers accused of threatening the driver with guns are charged with wanton endangerment and terroristic threatening.
