Some Bus Passengers Lose Confidence in Transportation System after Attacks

Greyhound is boosting security again following a Wednesday morning crash near Manchester, Tennessee. Six people were killed in the crash after a passenger attacked the bus driver.

Greyhound stopped rolling its buses for 4.5 hours. leaving passengers stranded at terminals around the country.  Here in Montgomery the Greyhound terminal is busy again, but not necessarily back to normal. Those arriving say trips that normally take a couple of hours took from 12 to 15 hours Wednesday.

One man travelling to Columbus, Ga called relatives in Fort Myers, Florida to drive to Montgomery and get him.  "I'm afraid of what's going to happen on buses, at schools, on planes, or at hospitals."  Another passenger said, "I'm just not comfortable...what's going to be hit next?"

Montgomery Greyhound officials say they will be doing a hand check of all luggage and passengers boarding buses that originate in Montgomery.  They are also considering cameras and security guards for additional security.
