Woman Accuses Bus Driver of Making Inappropriate Comments

An anonymous Arlington resident has alleged that she was sexually harassed by a chatty Metrobus driver.

The woman’s story was published on the Hollaback DC blog, which chronicles gender-based harassment in the Washington area. The woman said the driver’s suggestive comments about her height made her feel “paralyzed.”

“I was so mad, so pissed, I nearly cried,” she wrote.

The alleged incident took place during the evening rush hour on the 10B bus, which travels from Hunting Towers in Alexandria to the Ballston Metro station, via Shirlington and Buckingham.
