Bus driver gives 'thumbs up' to axing bus cash fares

A bus driver has welcomed news that Transport for London proposes to axe cash fare payments on buses.

Writing on the ITV London Facebook page:

Speaking as a London night bus driver, this idea has been floated around before, but now, it looks like the tide is turning, I do hope it is brought in, it will make things a lot easier esp. when Joe Public boards his bus and all he has is a £20.00 note, we are NOT given a float, but we ARE expected to give change. (work that one out), so I say, and I can give a HUGE thumbs up from drivers, BRING IT ON!
