Getting obscene gestures from bus drivers tops the list of complaints by seniors who take public transportation, according to the Consejo Nacional de la Persona Adulta Mayor (CONAPAM).

Seniors get a discount on all public buses and routes. Some bus drivers don’t like it and make it clear to the elderly, some with just a bad look, but others go the extra punch.
