Payment on buses to resume

From tomorrow, passengers in the capital will have to start paying again to use some buses, Transport for London (TfL) has said.

TfL had suspended the need to tap in at the front of buses during the coronavirus lockdown to protect drivers.

Reinstating bus payments is one of the conditions of the government’s £1.6 billion bailout of Transport for London.

In the capital, 33 bus workers — including 29 drivers — have died after contracting Covid-19, according to TfL.
