Boarding the Bus in an Electric Wheelchair

The bus arrived at the bus stop. While I was sitting in my electric wheelchair, I signaled to the transit operator, [bus driver] that I wanted to board the bus. The transit operator opened the doors and started to deploy the lift. While the lift was deploying, a teenage girl stepped onto the lift. The transit operator stopped the lift and told the teenage girl to please get off of the bus, because the wheelchair passenger boards the bus first. I heard the teenage girl say “that this is discrimination”. I said nothing. When the lift was completely deployed I boarded the bus.

Is this discrimination?
