A naked man walked down the middle of a busy street in broad daylight Monday afternoon, then boarded a NJ Transit bus as onlookers watched and took video.
The nude man was walking on Springfield Avenue when the bus stopped nearby, around 3:40 p.m., as shown in several videos posted to Youtube.
The man walked over to the bus, climbed into the open doors and pushed the driver around, said Nancy Snyder, a NJ Transit spokeswoman.

“The operator was not hurt – and he continued his route,” Snyder said this morning.
One Youtube video shows the Irvington police arriving at the scene several minutes after the man was first shown walking in circles in the middle of the road.
The Irvington police received a call about a man taking off his clothes in public at 3:47 p.m., said Joseph Santiago, the town’s police director. The officers responded, and the unnamed man was transported to Newark Beth Israel Medical Center at 4:19 p.m., Santiago said.
The man was detained without incident, added Sgt. Patrick Brennan. No charges were filed against the man, and the investigation was turned over to the NJ Transit police, the sergeant added.
The naked man was later taken away on a stretcher, after being subdued by police, according to an ABC-7 report.
