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, we shall also be taking extra steps to ensure that the ticket is not abused.”
