It's just like in the Flinstone's when Fred hears the whistle, he immediately drops what he's doing and heads for home.

But this is real life, on a TTC bus in Toronto's west end.

As a matter of fact, passengers on the 32 Eglinton West route were shocked to watch the driver get up from his seat, fill out a time card and then jump off, with nobody to take his place.

The driver told the passengers on the bus that he was in control of that it was 'time to go home', and then got up and left.

Victor Bulario was on the bus, and started filming the empty bus, and a searching for the driver, all while describing what he was seeing.

He later posted the video on YouTube.

When he spots another bus behind, Bulario speaks with a person in a TTC uniform, asking what was happening.

That person (who could not be identified) would only say he wasn't the person to talk to.

The Union says if the driver did, in fact, abandon his bus, consequences could be severe, including termination.
