Criticism over bus policy

A driver should not have prevented a schoolgirl, whose travel pass had snapped in two, from boarding a bus, says a woman who paid the girl’s fare in Greater London.

Erlinda Goldie said the driver of the 258 denied the girl, aged 13 or 14 and in school uniform, entry to a bus in Harrow yesterday evening.

Ms Goldie described TfL’s (Transport for London’s) bus fare policy as ‘broken’ and ‘busted’.

TfL said it is ‘deeply concerned to hear about this incident and sorry for the distress caused’.
