I can't understand why the driver was out his bus. But yes - could have been so much worse. As its a glasgow holiday today.

Apparently the driver was in a shop shock

I get all the streets around there muddled up. Is it there or Hope St where quite a lot of buses seem to stop and rest?

That's awful. So lucky it wasn't worse than that. Hope the injured are ok. Maybe the fact it is the fair Monday meant less people put and about at work. So less office staff. More people shopping though I guess.

When I used to use busses I know drivers sometimes just ran into shops to get a drink/go to the toilet!

Renfield street is where all the buses south of the river go. It's incredibly busy.

I thought that they weren't allowed to leave the bus nowadays.

So did I, Agent. I haven't seen a bus driver out of the bus in ages, unless they were helping with wheelchairs or fixing something.
