Physically threatening bus driver on 163 service, 11/8/16

Complaint about Translink

Horrific Bus Driver. 7.27pm Ulsterbus from Joymount to Kilroot, Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. Thursday evening 11/8/16 On Thursday evening 11/8/16 I was waiting at Joymount for the 7.27pm bus to Kilroot. When the bus turned round at the library he went to the crown of the road and was indicating to turn into the car park across the road and abandon his run, and leave me standing there! I put my hand out indicating to him I wanted to get on; he didn’t seem to want me to do that and was waving his arms back and forth and shaking his head and giving me angry menacing threatening stares! He did eventually open the doors while sitting well out from the kerb, I stepped in and he was menacing me and waving his arms back and forth and shaking his head and thumping the ticket machine with his fist and the side of the bus at the window with his other fist. He continued to give me menacing and threatening stares and said “for f... sake you are ruining my night”. He thumped the ticket machine again with his fist and the side of the bus at the window with his other fist. I found his conduct intimidating, threatening and frightening. He eventually did issue me with a ticket, and started to drive, as he drove he thumped the ticket machine again with his fist and glared and stared at me in his rear view mirror and continued shaking his head, this continued on the way out to Kilroot. I am extremely worried about getting on a bus on this route again ongoing. I do have to rely on public transport to get out. This driver should be prosecuted for his behaviour. Yet Translink don’t seem interested. The ticket shows driver No 413663.
