Flinstones Did It!
Build Your Own Bus
Made of cardboard and "people powered", they aim to take to the streets the following Saturday, stopping at bus stops to encourage passengers to avoid paying excessive fares to First Buses.Good for them.
Patrick says, "It's at times like this that we can
draw on humour and our creative thinking to make real changes. We just changed First to Last.
Campaigners from "We Want Our Buses Back " are encouraging everyone to find creative ways to avoid paying First bus fares; walk, cycle, car-pool, hire a mini-bus, organise a walking bus, whatever you can think of. The idea is to gradually increase pressure on First until they are willing to negotiate with their passengers.
Sadly, it's not an original idea.
