Arriva - You Must Use The Bus Stop.

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Markintime, Feb 24, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have you ever noticed on bus stops that some say request and some say fare stage? No? Well buses are supposed to stop at Fare Stage but only stop if flagged at a request stop.
    It now seems that Arriva have introduced tough new penalties for those not using their bus stops in the correct manner or for trying to stop a bus between stops.

    Some of the comments are a treat especially the one from Texas Pete!
     
  2. So Arriva arranged the deparcha of someone trying to board the outrage bus.

  4. Perhaps if he'd been at one the bus would have stopped, Trigger. :roll:

    No, I'm having a slow day. I might get my head in gear by midday, if not, it is going to be a long day.
     
  9. You mean like the driver did :p
     
  10. Did he not realise the guy was dragged along for over 400 metres?
     
  11. He (too) was feeling a bit run down.
     
  12. No, the window wiper was in the way
     
  13. He did but couldn't stop the bus as nobody rang the bell.
     
  14. Did he have to pay his fare?
     
  15. Yes, I believe he was charged a flat-fare
