Queensland branch secretary of the TWU, Peter Biagini, told Scott Emerson there were “constant attacks on bus drivers every day”.
Scott said it was abhorrent.
“I understand he is stable now, obviously a bit shaken up about it, because you never know what that substance could be, and that’s why they had to race him to hospital, to check what effect it had on him,” Mr Biagini said.
He has renewed the push for security screens on all buses.
“Every new bus that enters the system should have a security screen, that’s a great start and then slowly retrofit them.”
Police are appealing for any members of the public who have dashcam or CCTV footage in and around Drews Road and Jalan Street between 9am and 10am to come forward.
