Hey, remember that awesome Skycycle idea? It's not going to happen.
And here's a rather more direct example of TfL's attempts to remove passengers from its network by any means necessary - whether temporarily, or permanently. Little as I've come to expect from TfL employees, that one surprised even me. Still, I suppose it's only fair: if bus drivers are expected to have and use specialist skills (in this case making change), they should receive spot bonuses for it.
