A bus company has defended chaotic scenes at a Guomao bus terminal as passengers fought to board a delayed bus through its windows Monday evening.

Beijing Public Transportation Holdings explained the chaos was caused by unusual traffic congestion.

The pictures were taken at Langjiayuan, the terminus of the No.815 bus at 5:30 pm Monday, according to a report in the Legal Mirror Tuesday. Passengers climbed on the tires to get through the windows, after they failed to get close to the bus door among the crowds. The packed bus managed to depart 15 minutes later.

The 815 bus line connects Zhugedian in Yanjiao, Hebei Province and Langjiangyuan in Chaoyang district.

"The crowds were stranded at the bus stop as buses failed to arrive on time due to terrible traffic congestion caused by temporary traffic control measures near Guomao," said Zhang Yinlong, publicity officer from the bus company.

"Such chaos would not occur in ordinary situations," Zhang noted.
