A passenger intervened and told the driver that Mrs. Pearson regularly travels the route on the way to work with Arthur, but he still did not shrink.

“We’ve been here the last 50 minutes because he says it’s not a guide dog,” Pearson said in the broadcast.

After a one-hour break with Mrs. Pearson and her dog, the bus driver called the police.

Officers offered to drive her to work, but she refused and took a stand against the driver.

“That’s not how you win a fight,” she said.

The driver finally gave in under pressure from the passengers and left Mrs. Pearson and Arthur on the bus.

“I can’t believe we have this kind of nonsense these days,” she said.

“I’m completely blind. I’m just trying to go to work! “

Guide dogs are legally permitted to travel on all public transportation under Victorian law.
