Boarding the No.8 Buses
Transport for London emailed one of our members with the following information:
From Friday 9 August, customers will only be able to board new Routemaster buses on routes 8 and N8 using the front doors. You will not be able to board using the middle or rear doors, and will not be able to exit at the front. The yellow card readers in the middle and back of the bus will no longer be in use.
If you need to use the wheelchair priority space, you can still use the middle doors to board. If you’re travelling with a buggy, let the driver know you need to board through the middle doors first. Then, go to the front and touch in on the yellow card reader or show your ticket to the driver.
TFL say: “We’re making this change to make sure that everyone pays the right fare and to bring new Routemasters in line with how customers board other buses in London.”
