Transport company warned over discrimination based on sexual orientation


The Equal Opportunities Ombudsman in Lithuania has warned a Vilnius transport company over discrimination based on sexual orientation following a complaint made by the Lithuanian Gay League (LGL).

A representative of LGL first wrote a private email to the transport company requesting to rent a bus for three hours on 17 May 2012. The company confirmed the booking later the same day, informing that the service would cost 700 litas and asking to specify the required route.

In connection with providing the requested details, the client informed the company that the bus would be used by the Lithuanian Gay League. The bus company then informed the client that the booking was on hold due to negotiations over another event on 17 May.

LGL proceeded by asking the company if a bus would be available on any other date in May, but received no reply. Eventually, the company replied by saying negotiations were still ongoing and that LGL should make enquiries with other bus companies.

The Equal Opportunities Ombudsman found that the transport company in question refused to rent a bus to the client on the grounds of sexual orientation, and thus violated the Lithuanian Equal Opportunities Act.
