Sean Dale started this petition to TFL

You ever broke your Oyster card and they don’t let you onto the bus because they “cAnT tAkE iT”. I’m writing this petition so that TFL should let us on the bus when we don’t have an oyster or when we are waiting for a replacement because the amount of times I’ve been late, missed an appointment or couldn’t get to a store to acquire vital equipment for school is embarrassing. As a person who isn’t that great at caring for things, this rule would change my life a lot. Most likely, many teenagers have been in this situation and this is why I’m reaching out to you to change this absurd rule that bus drivers have. 

 

Another problem which my friends and I get a lot is that we have our zip card but it’s broken and won’t scan although if you look at the picture and me, YOU CAN TELL ITS ME. So why can’t they let us on the bus because of this ???

 

Personally also think that there shouldn’t be a charge for replacement card, if it is broken stolen or just doesn’t work. I think this because if you do the maths if a zip card costs 15 pounds, after 10 journeys, 1 journey is equal to 1.50. Assuming many kids and teens use the zip card to get the school and the average kid gets two buses to school that’s 4 buses a day on average. 4 times 5 as there are 5 school days equals 20 so you make 20 journeys each week. From then every journey will cost 75p. As you keep on going, every journey will cost less and less making the bus practically free to teenagers. This is why i care so much :)
