DescriptionLast October 18 the day The New York World went live with a mission to expand journalism education and hold local and state governments accountable editor Alyssa Katz posted a story by World reporter Sasha Chavkin about a private bus line in Brooklyn that ran a city bus route under a franchise agreement. Despite being open to all New York residents the line primarily served Orthodox Jewish communities and women had to ride separate from men on its routes.
