Bus Ticket

Even though I have a pass giving me free travel on buses after 9.30 am, the driver still has to issue a ticket.

From the information printed thereon you can learn that I caught a 201 which started its journey at 10:06 (from Manchester Piccadilly). I boarded at Hyde at 10:44. The destination of the bus was John Kennedy Gardens, Hattersley.

Although retired people get a reduced fare here, some will try and get the earlier buses. The drivers call them Twerlies, as they'll say "Oh sorry, am I too early?".

Don't worry, it won;t last long. Management will soon find out that they could save a few £££ if they stop issuing a paper ticket to people who are travelling free.

political correctness at its best!

In Tameside we get a ticket in Manchester we don't.
No one seems to know who's counting.

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for your help! I changed my photo, what do you think? Is it clearer?

Interesting on the bus rides. Here it's not all that safe to be taking our bus system, which is called MARTA. But that's in Atlanta and it's an hour from my house!

This is really neat, Gerald. I love that "alight."
