New York City Transit officials have launched an investigation after a bus driver was photographed texting on his cell phone as he drove through traffic. The photo, taken by a passenger, was published in the Staten Island Advance newspaper.

The picture was reportedly taken by a woman sitting in the first row of an express bus traveling from between Manhattan and Staten Island.

The paper says the woman described the trip as "frightening."

Transit Authority spokesman Charles Seaton says bus drivers are prohibited from using cell phones while driving on the job.
