“However, he should not have gotten into an argument or used offensive language,” the spokesperson said in response to queries from MS News.

In light of what happened, Tower Transit will counsel the bus captain. The company clarified that its drivers have been taught to give cyclists a wide berth while sharing the roads with them.

Driver stopped bus to confront cyclist

In the viral video, the driver appeared to have stopped the bus to confront the cyclist.

Throughout the clip, the two men shouted at each other in Hokkien, exchanging expletives. The recording ended with the bus driver returning to his seat and closing the doors on the cyclist.

The OP who posted the video claimed in the caption that the incident occurred on Saturday (13 April). They shared that the bus captain was driving service 856 at the time of the incident.

He had apparently “had enough” of the cyclist “hogging the whole lane” and told the latter to keep left, sparking the dispute.
