Proposals by Transport for London to end cash fare payments on the capital's buses has received mixed reviews on the ITV London Facebook page.
Here are some of your views:

We'll have more chancers trying it on. People outside London would expect to pay with cash for the bus, regardless if it's more expensive or not. Contactless cards (which I don't have) will relieve the problem, but is not mass market yet.

I think its a good idea, , The people who say what happens if I don't have enough money on card.etc etc!!!!?? . With microchip technology if you register your bank details (same as with congestion charge) it could be automatically deducted... It would reduce crime on the bus drivers

Long as they still have those payment machines at the bus stops don't see the problem. More safety for the driver
