A disabled man was denied access to an AC Transit bus last Friday at the San Leandro BART station, according to ABC7 News.
After reviewing video surveillance on the bus and questioning the driver, AC Transit confirmed that the man in a wheelchair was told he couldn’t board the bus because the designated wheelchair area was occupied by an elderly passenger with shopping cart of groceries and a mother with a baby in a stroller.
The man got angry after being denied and blocked the bus.

Passengers were able to convince the elderly woman with a grocery cart to move to another seat so the man could board.
According to AC Transit, the driver secured the man’s wheelchair and the bus continues on its route.
