    Some New Jersey bus commuters apparently have gotten an unexpected tour of the New York metro area they'd rather forget.
     
    New Jersey Transit is investigating why a trip that normally takes about 45 minutes took nearly two hours more Thursday when the driver took a circuitous route into Manhattan's Port Authority bus terminal.
     
    A passenger on the ill-fated trip tells Newark's The Star-Ledger newspaper the driver seemed lost and passed the Secaucus train station several times, drove past outlet stores and eventually crossed the George Washington Bridge. Normally, the bus would go through the Lincoln Tunnel, several miles south.
     
    Aileen Iosso tells the newspaper when passengers asked to be let off after the driver passed the bus terminal the driver yelled at them.
