Thought I'd give public transport a go today. Partner had an very early start in the car and I couldn't be bothered to cycle.
Last time I used the bus was a month ago and it cost £2.55 to my destination.
Today, it was £2.65. There was a notice at the front of the bus saying "bus fairs to rise on April 17th" but there was no mention of by how much.
Point is, a few of the old chaps getting on the bus (who's bus passes aren't valid until after 9.30 I later found out) didn't have enough so some other passengers on the bus had to share a few coppers to help them out.
Aren't old people stupid!...
...No, that's not the point. The point is that I would have thought it would have been better for the bus company to let people know what the rise would be rather than just saying there would be a rise?
Legally, I wonder where they stand in terms of people not being able to afford the bus due to no prior notice of the actual increase?
