The TTC says it has taken disciplinary action in the case of the bus driver who abandoned his bus with passengers still on board - but they won't say what punishment was doled out.

Last week, riders on an eastbound 32 Eglinton West bus were left waiting when their bus driver pulled over on Eglinton Ave. W. and Trethewey Dr., got off the bus and jumped on another bus. Those riders were left stranded for approximately 30 minutes until TTC staff declared the bus out of service and asked them to leave the vehicle.

TTC spokesman Brad Ross confirmed Wednesday that the investigation into the incident had wrapped up.
