Muni Operator Busted Texting While Driving Bus

Just the other day Muni made headlines after a train door randomly opened while the light rail flew through the Metro Tunnel. Already dubious about Muni safety, riders are now learning about a bus operator who was busted texting while behind the wheel.

KTVU reports that in February, a passenger recorded his bus driver sending and receiving text messages while driving the 24 down Divisadero with a busload of passengers in tow.

The passenger — Shawn Higgins — used his cell phone to record the one-minute clip of the operator's distracted driving. Higgins told KTVU that he confronted the bus operator, who got angry and stopped the bus.

She started saying, 'I'm going to show you. I'll never pick you up again asshole,'” Higgins told KTVU.
