In London's buses you can now pay cash


July 6 London authorities stopped selling tickets in city buses or at bus stops. Now buy bus tickets you will need in advance. In order to ride the bus in London, you will need to buy a travel or smart card Oyster Card. If you pay by Oyster Card, each journey is deducted at 1.45 lb, but not more than 4.4 pounds per day.

The reason for the cancellation of sales of bus tickets are a small number of these tickets. Over the past 13 years, their number has decreased from 25% to 1%. It will also allow you to significantly unload the drivers.

In addition, last month the possibility of one additional travel on the London city bus in the event that the passenger does not have enough funds on the card Oyster Card for full fare payment. Card will be charged the regular rate of 1.45 pounds, then its balance will be negative. It should be remembered that only one is allowed to ride the bus, so the Oyster Card will have to replenish. This scheme has been in place since the beginning of summer and she managed to use a few hundred people.
