First Team Starter
- Mar 10, 2020
There was one occasion when a Revenue Protection team actually boarded a replacement bus service I was on in order to check that everyone had a ticket! (and yes, I did have one) This would never happen on the Continent, where replacement buses are always free of charge.Yes, tends to be okay on days when journeys are disrupted due to engineering and trains are re-routed or have bus replacement. The staff are more concerned with getting the passengers on to the right buses, etc., rather than checking tickets and ticket barriers are often left open on such occasions. Engineering work usually takes place at weekends/Bank Holidays so the rail staff are faced with occasional travelers who need more guidance than the commuting public.
