Here in Devon we charge dogs to travel on our buses. There have been many reasons put forward as to why we charge but the real reason is to stop dogs traveling on buses on their own. Just a minute I hear you say, dogs don't travel on their own on buses. But when I was driving a bus in London there was a dog that sat at a bus stop and when a bus stopped it got on. When it got to where it was going it would bark to let the driver know it wanted to get off. No problem as we didn't charge for dogs. But we do here. 50p single fare. It used to be 50p return but that went out the window last time the fares went up. There were one or three protests and now the company have introduced a Rover Rover . Rover can now travel as often as he/she likes on any Stagecoach bus in Devon for just 75p. All he needs is an adult on the other end of the lead. Please don't sit on a seat.
The company call the ticket a Dog Day Ticket but Rover Rover sounds better.
