BUSted: Illinois Company Accused of Human Rights Act Violations

Dec 7, 2017

The Illinois Attorney General’s Civil Rights Bureau is conducting an investigation into private bus company Suburban Express for possible violations of the Illinois Human Rights Act. The company said in a statement that they would find passengers like themselves on its buses and their passengers won’t “feel like they are in China.” Karyn Bass Ehler is the chief of the Attorney General’s Civil Rights Bureau. She can’t discuss much about the case. But she tells Illinois Public Media’s Brian Moline the part of the Illinois Human Rights Act that Suburban Express may have violated.

 

That’s Karyn Bass Ehler, the chief of the Illinois Attorney General’s Civil Rights Bureau. Her office is investigating possible violations of the Illinois Human Rights Act by the private bus company Suburban Express. It operates shuttles from the University of Illinois Urbana campus to the Chicago suburbs and O’Hare Airport.

Bass Ehler says anyone with information on this case can call the Civil Rights Bureau at 877-581-3692 or visit illinoisattorneygeneral.gov
