THE BRONX -

An MTA bus went missing for eight hours after someone decided to take it for a joyride.

According to the New York Post, the bus, parked on Bruckner Boulevard in Longwood, was being used as a shelter for drivers.

However, around 8 p.m. last Sunday the bus was empty.

Reports say someone climbed behind the wheel, driving the bus all the way to Queens and back. Using GPS, officials finally found the bus at around 4 a.m. about a half mile away from where it was taken.
