The bus, carrying passengers from the Explorer of the Seas, struck trouble while attempting to turn from North Rd into Blacks Rd, in Northeast Valley, shortly before midday on Saturday.
It appeared the bus had bottomed out on the corner, becoming stuck fast and forcing passengers to abandon ship - much to the amusement of some residents of the area.
Senior Sergeant Craig Brown, of Dunedin, said police were called after reports of the bus ‘‘stuck at the intersection'', and helped with traffic control until the bus was towed free about 2.15pm.
