Ticket machines vandalised

Cambridgeshire County Council has appealed for help in catching thieves who caused damage to the Busway ticket machines at Histon and Longstanton earlier this month. One consequence is that the County Council has now decided to remove the facility to pay by cash at the machines - cash fares can be paid on the bus instead. Indeed, the necessary work had already been carried out when I travelled along the Busway yesterday.

  1. The Cambridge News has picked up the story, adding some information not given in the original County Council press release. Apparently the cost of one ticket machine is £35,000 [sic]. And they're equally expensive to repair. See here for the full story:
