Brooklyn, NY - Feds Investigate Borough Park-Williamsburg Bus For Requiring Women To Sit In Back
Brooklyn, NY - A Brooklyn bus contracted by the city to operate a Williamsburg-to-Borough Park route—catering to Orthodox Jews but open to the public—is under investigation for allegedly forcing women to sit in the back of the bus, authorities said yesterday.
The B110 looks a lot like any other city bus on the outside—with a lit-up sign broadcasting its official route number.
Inside, however, is like taking a trip to the pre-Civil Rights era South.
“That’s reserved for men,” the bus driver told a female Post reporter when asked if she could sit in the front rows.
Signs written in Hebrew and English direct women to use the back door during busy times.
