A spokesman from First said: "We can confirm that there was an incident involving a First bus earlier today. The bus, which was operating on Service 5, was proceeding normally at the time, moving past a stationary vehicle - which was parked on the edge of the bus stop.
"As the driver pulled into the bus stop on St James Street West it appears that a door from the third party vehicle was opened, coming into contact with, and breaking, one of the bus’s windows.
"One passenger, sitting close to the broken window, sustained a small cut as a result of the incident, but they did not require hospital treatment."
Police were on scene to help divert traffic.
