Photos: Bus breakdown on Main Street, Batavia
A tour bus returning from dropping off passengers at the Buffalo Airport broke down this morning on West Main Street at the intersection with Ellicott Street.
The call came in at 9:04 a.m. and the bus wasn't moved until after 11 a.m., causing a bit of a traffic jam for eastbound travelers.
The driver reportedly told Officer Eric Dibble that he was concerned the bus was experiencing mechanical difficulties, which is why he didn't drive on the Thruway back to Rochester.
No passengers were on the bus at the time of the breakdown.
At least the driver was smart and did not take the thruway back to Rochester. That was good thinking on his part. Also glad that there were no passengers on board.
