For years Preston Bus (now part of Stagecoach North West) has been “Exact change only” with coin drop slot to take payment.
The fare was £1.20 I only had a £1 & a 50p coin.
But after a protest today the bus driver issued me with a credit note to the value of the “wasted” coins, which I can use on subsequent travel.
How many times have people put in £1 for a 90p ride? How much extra revenue does this make for Stagecoach? Should they be forced to install change machines or at least advertise that you can obtain a credit note?
