We reluctantly abolished the ‘3 Stop Hop’ ticket in April 2012 after we had encountered serious problems with people travelling fraudulently – staying on the bus for a lot more than three stops for their £1 fare. However, it became clear during our recent fare consultation events that people are really keen to see it restored. We’ve heard this message and so we’re bringing back the ‘3 Stop Hop’ as a temporary measure until we know the full outcome of our current fare consultation. However, we shall also be taking extra steps to ensure that the ticket is not abused.”
