New Taipei, July 8 (CNA) A public bus company in New Taipei was fined NT$30,000 (US$1,018) Wednesday, after one of its drivers left behind two members of a family that was trying to board in Taipei.

According to a Facebook post by a woman surnamed Wu (吳), the bus driver closed the doors and drove off as soon as her 12-year-old son boarded, while she and her infant child were left stranded.

Wu said she was trying to take the bus, which is operated by the Sindian Bus Company Ltd., from downtown Taipei to her home in Xindian District, New Taipei.

When the driver drove away with her 12-year-old son on board, Wu said, she ran after the bus with her infant son on her back until she was exhausted.    [FULL  STORY]
