OC Transpo will be installing protective barriers between passengers and drivers on a handful of city buses as part of a pilot project later this year.

The shields will be designed to "restrict customer access to the operator's area," according to a memo from general manager John Manconi that will be presented at Wednesday's transit commission meeting.
