Longview, TX — Longview police and Longview Transit have teamed up to make riders feel more comfortable using public transporation.
The program places Police Area Representative (PAR) officers on buses throughout the city at various times and on various routes.
“We want to bring greater safety awareness to riders,” said Rob Stephens, Longview Transit general manager.
The public transit system has a perception problem, he said. Generally, people view such systems in a bad light.
