WAUKESHA -- A bus driver in Waukesha has been disciplined for calling a passenger, "short, fat and white" after the woman asked that the air conditioning be turned off on the bus. Video of the incident has been posted on YouTube. 

The City of Waukesha contracts bus service from Veolia Transportation out of Lombard Illinois. The company handles discipline, but won't disclose what was done in this case. Veolia says they must respect the employee's right to privacy.

The driver is still employed, but because of the August 23rd incident all Veolia employees serving Waukesha Metro Transit are getting a refresher course in customer service.
