The MTA says it is investigating a video that shows one of its bus drivers looking at his cell phone while behind the wheel.

The Staten Island Advance posted the above cell phone video taken by a bus passenger Wednesday evening during the massive rainstorm that hit the city.

The video shows the driver of an X22A express bus glancing back and forth from the windshield to his phone.

The bus was headed from Manhattan to Staten Island at the time.

According to the Advance, the passenger says the driver ignored her when she attempted to talk to him.

The MTA says the driver could be given a 20-day suspension or even be fired.
