Transit Police release video of woman who spat on bus driver

MBTA Transit Police released a video today of the woman who spit on a bus driver after being asked to exit the bus for not paying her fare.

The woman — described as being in her mid-20s, between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-6, and wearing a double-breasted brown jacket — boarded a 22 bus at Ashmont Station along with two young children at 3:20 p.m. Saturday.

The video appears to show her walking, with a child in her arms, to the front of the bus and spitting on the driver. Transit Police said in a statement that they hoped the video would help them identify and arrest the woman for assault.

“These recent assaults on our operators are reprehensible attacks on good public servants,” MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott said in a statement. “With support from the public, Transit Police will continue to identify and apprehend the perpetrators of these cowardly acts.”

Transit Police asked anyone with information about the incident to call 617-222-1050. Those who want to remain anonymous can do so via the MBTA SeeSay app or simply text a message/tip to police at 873873.
