A TransLink bus bumped into a traffic light near Metrotown in Burnaby, B.C. while making several attempts at a turn. 

It appears the driver had to make a number of adjustments, but it's not clear from the cellphone video posted on YouTube how it got into the situation in the first place. 

Transit police says the incident happened Sept. 26 in the afternoon. The bus operator has been identified. Spokeswoman Anne Drennan wouldn't say if the driver was new or experienced. 

No injuries were reported.
