    YES.  His job is to get people to their destination in a safe manner(meaning no mask=no ride) Same goes for No swords= no ride, no pyromaniac= no ride. Being rude=no ride.

    . The bus driver is the "Captain of his ship"

    That depends. If this was just the driver's whim then the driver was wrong. It seems more likely that the driver was trying to enforce rules in place to keep people safe in which case he was correct, unless the passenger had a genuine medical reason for not wearing a mask.

    Arguing with the bus driver about anything is enough cause for the driver to refuse a rider.

    The driver did what his company told him to do.  Does he keep his job?  Yes, probably.  Did he do the right thing?  No.

    Driver was right, IF, there was a posted sign, AND he did not "kick " Anyone. Just Insisted.  Physical force is not allowed except in response to a threat

    ,

    Wrong if the guy had some med excuse, and/or forgot his doctor's excuse.

    The bus system where I live has a sign that says passengers must wear a mask. If a passenger refuses to wear a mask, the bus driver "kicks that person off the bus"*. It's really simple. 

    *Refuses that person a ride.  (No physical kicking is used).  The bus doesn't move until the person gets off or another passenger provides a mask. 

    By the way, our TWO bus systems have not been charging any fare for numerous months.  A bus ride is free.

    Yes, especially if that is the law.

    This could be a civil rights violation. I would sue and possibly even criminal as well.
