A student from Milton Keynes, decided he wanted to bring a life-size cardboard replica of Gears of War protagonist , Marcus Fenix on the bus. To his dismay, he was notified by the London bus driver that he would have to pay an additional fee for his extra travelling buddy and that his bus pass didn’t cover that.
Sheridan, aged 17 was thus charged £1.80 for a full adult fare, on top of his monthly pass after the bus driver insisted that his cardboard friend “takes up a seat, so it’s full price’“
“It was truly bizarre, I couldn’t quite believe it,” Liam told the Milton Keynes Citizen. “I tried to protest but the driver wasn’t going to let me on otherwise, so I had to pay him.“
The Citizen followed up with the transit authority, which said it wasn’t commenting until its investigation was finished.
