Brooklyn, NY - Williamsburg-Borough Park Bus To DOT: Women In Back Of Bus Policy Will End
Brooklyn, NY - The Orthodox Jewish-run Brooklyn bus company that stuck women in the back seats is putting an end to the controversial practice after a reprimand from the city.
The Private Transportation Corp.—which runs the Williamsburg-to- Borough Park B110 bus—wrote a letter to the Department of Transportation promising to instruct drivers not to move women to the back.
Operators pay the city more than $20,000 a year to run the line as part of a 30-year-old franchising agreement, which specifically forbids discrimination.
