‘A man has allegedly taken a tourist bus and its 13 passengers on a joy-ride around inner Sydney.

Police say the 33-year-old Abbotsford man was walking past the casino on Pirrama Road in Pyrmont about 8:50am AEST, when he boarded the bus with the motor running.

They say the man, who was allegedly drunk, drove off when the driver was standing nearby awaiting the arrival of other passengers for a sightseeing tour.

He allegedly drove along several local streets before returning to the point of departure.

Police say he then ran from the vehicle and was chased by the driver and a number of other people. Police on patrol joined the chase.’
