Video Shows Man Chilling On Top Of A Moving CTA Bus, Smoking A Cigarette

A man was videotaped Wednesday afternoon riding around Lincoln Park on top of a CTA bus while smoking a cigarette. In the video above, the bus, a #74 Fullerton bus, can be seen heading west through the intersection of Fullerton and Sheffield avenues.

The video was taken by a man named Lloyd Anthony Peters, who posted it on Facebook. The CTA sent NBC5 a statement about the video calling the man on the bus's behavior "extremely foolish and dangerous."

In the video, a voice can be heard saying that the person on top of the bus had first asked someone to "tap" their Ventra card for him to ride the bus for free, but he wasn't able to get a tap.
