After the angry motorist halted the bus, passengers could be seen running away while one student still on board was head shouting, "Oh s**t! He's got you now bro".

The raging motorist is then seen walking up to the driver and thumping on the window.

"Today I caught a 361 bus that arrived at Manurewa around 4.05, on the way home the bus driver almost crashed into a random driver, then he drove in front of him instead of stopping," he said.

"This made the other guy angry so he chased us and the bus driver wasn't stopping when we asked him to.

"This bus driver always shouts at people and argues with them, causing trouble, but today he did it to the wrong guy. The bus driver beeped his horn after he got hit on the mouth."

During the incident, the bus driver can be heard relaying information before driving away.

The incident is believed to have occurred on Monday, February 19 at 4.05pm.

An Auckland Transport spokesperson told the Herald the bus company the driver works for is aware of the incident.

"The company is investigating the incident and will talk to the driver, there is CCTV footage from the cameras in the bus and that is being reviewed.

"We don't believe the bus driver was assaulted."
