[VIDEO] MARALiner Apologises After Bus Driver Leaves Behind Running Passenger
Bus operator, MARALiner, has issued an apology following the viral incident where a bus driver left behind a passenger who was late by a minute
The situation gained widespread attention after another bus passenger shared a video of the incident at Kuala Terengganu Bus Terminal (MBKT) on TikTok.
In the video, the late passenger can be seen frantically chasing after their departing bus, tapping on its sides while asking to be let in. Despite the passenger's desperate attempts, the bus driver seemingly ignored him and continued driving.
