Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi
in response to reader comment: Public Bus Driver can refuse to carry that person drinking acohol.

These are closed-container, sober passengers. This has nothing to do with Christians, or really, Muslims for that matter. Just people who are using a religious consideration for fare-refusal, and who are sanctioned by a tax-payer funded public utility. Bus drivers (and I'm assuming you mean they are allowed to refuse) could of course refuse an open container or publicly drunk person in their vehicle. See, those people are breaking the law.

Read Mr. Pipes' article for the specifics of this case.
