The Seattle blind couple denied a ride by public transit would have been welcomed as just another profit opportunity
Cindy Bennett and Michael Mello were trying to catch the bus on
Capitol Hill on Sunday when they say the driver insisted they get off
the bus and wait for the next one because no priority seats
"He was making an assumption that the only seats we could sit in were
those designated as ADA seats," Bennett said. "We felt that it was a
pretty clear indication that we were not welcome on that bus."
"He started kind of getting louder and more irate with me and saying,
'the ADA section is full.' I said, 'that's fine. We can sit anywhere
else on this bus. It's no problem,'" added Mello.
Maybe not for them, but the bus driver has his problems serving the public.
