Another Metro Transit bus driver has been the subject of an attack by passengers in Minneapolis.

Three males are seen kicking and punching the driver in video footage shared on Facebook by Jeremy Hop.

"Prayers for a speedy recovery of this guy who is simply doing his job," Hop wrote.

"Violence is unacceptable and nobody should feel in danger by simply performing their job."

A spokesman for Metro Transit told KARE 11 police are investigating the incident, and didn't comment on what caused the fight or how it happened outside the bus.

It comes in the same week a man was charged with an attack on another Metro Transit driver, who was driving Route 5 in north Minneapolis.

That attack prompted calls for improved barriers between drivers and the public, calls which will surely intensify following Thursday's incident.
