Transport for London is reinstating a requirement for bus passengers to pay fares on London buses.
Free travel was introduced in late April when TfL implemented middle door boarding to reduce the risk of bus drivers contracting Covid-19 (LTT 01 May). Most card readers are located by the front door, close to the driver.
From 23 May passengers have been required to touch-in when boarding 85 routes served by single-door buses and New Routemaster buses that have card readers by the middle doors.
“This is the first step to returning all of London’s buses to being able to accept payments once further safety measures have been introduced to protect bus drivers,” said TfL.
The reinstatement of fare payments was a condition to the Government’s Covid-19 rescue package for TfL.
Middle-door only boarding on London buses will continue to operate until further notice.
