NY bus accused of sex discrimination
New York City officials say they could shut a bus service running through an Orthodox Jewish area that is accused of asking women to sit at the back.
Officials have written to the firm operating the bus asking what they are doing to prevent discrimination.
The B110 bus is operated by a private firm under a franchising agreement with the city, but is open to the public.
