Explaining A Policy Change Impacting Visually Impaired Riders

It's not a financial decision.    That from Frank McCarey of Saint John Transit on the commission's move to stop allowing the visually impaired to ride on the bus for free.

He says it's happened with other transit services where providing the free service for the visually impaired was considered discriminatory to other groups.

CHSJ News asked McCarey if potential legal action on the part of these other groups was a factor, he says in other centres with a similar policy it was threatened.
