N.Y. bus co. denies discriminating against women

Posted on October 27, 2011

NEW YORK — Private Transportation Corp., which transports primarily Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish passengers between Williamsburg and Borough Park in Brooklyn, denied in a letter from executive Jacob Marmurstein that that it discriminates against female passengers by making them sit at the back of the bus, The New York Times reported.

Marmurstein said in the letter that his company had not received any complaints about having separate seating for men and women on the B110 bus, due to religious reasons. He offered to provide the bus company’s complaint log since July as confirmation to the New York City Department of Transportation, which is intervening because it has a franchise agreement with the company.
