An MTA supervisor has been suspended for allegedly licking a female bus driver's face and the agency is working to fire him, amNewYork has learned.

Bus driver Nancy Jenkins said her supervisor stuck out his tongue and licked up the center of her face in an incident in April.

The supervisor was suspended without pay "pending dismissal" last week after an "exhaustive investigation," an MTA spokesman confirmed on Thursday.

But Transport Workers Union President John Samuelsen blasted the MTA on Thursday, saying it was "outrageous" that it took the agency two months to move to fire the supervisor.

The supervisor's union representative did not return a message for comment by press time.
