TfL Charging Passengers For Using Free Replacement Buses....And They Know They're Doing It.

Kingston and Richmond bus users could have payed out of hundreds of pounds unnecessarily after being charged full fare for free buses — and Transport for London knew it was happening.

The 65 and 371 routes from Petersham Road, between Sandy Lane and Star and Garter Hill, and into Kingston have been diverted or cancelled because of utility works that started on July 31.

Three replacement services, the 565, 571 and 572, are running in their place.

The TfL replacement buses are advertised as free during the five week-long roadworks and posters state: "Passengers will still need to tap in but will not be charged."

But anyone using a contactless Visa card instead of an Oyster card will see the full £1.50 fare come from their account.

Siobhan Pestano, who was travelling to Kingston from Ham, noticed she had been charged after boarding the 371 replacement.

She said: "When I noticed the money had come out of my bank account I rang TfL to complain and was told that it was because I'd used my [Visa] card and not an Oyster.

"Well that really set me off because they knew it was happening. I was completely furious.

"Why are there no posters saying 'Oysters only' if they know other cards will be charged.

"These works are happening in the summer holidays when families tend to use the buses much more.

"There will be people who can't afford the charge if they were expecting not to pay.

"Others will not have time to call up TfL for a refund."

Anyone using a contactless payment card twice a day, five days a week on the supposedly free routes would be eligible for a £75 refund after the five weeks of works. TfL cap all bus journeys in London at £4.40.

Emma Smith also found she had been charged when she used her contactless card on the 565 route. She claims she spent 15 minutes on hold to TfL before giving up on getting a refund.

She said: "It was only £3 so I just thought it wasn't worth my time in the end.

"But I bet there are a lot of people using the buses everyday that are racking up a fortune."

A spokesman for TfL said passengers were asked to tap in for security and data collection purposes.

He added: "We appreciate this matter being drawn to our attention.

"We’re looking into it, but in the meantime customers concerned they have been charged should contact our customer services on 0343 222 1234 or email customerservices@tfl.gov.uk."

MILTON KEYNES CITY TAXIS SAFETY SPOT CHECK FAILURES

Taxi spot check in Milton Keynes found ‘majority’ had defects

10:55Thursday 04 February 2016

Spot checks on city taxis revealed more than half the vehicles had defects so serious that they were not fit to be on the road, the Citizen can reveal.

The faults found included defective tyres, dodgy lights, leaking oil and even a loose passenger door.

The checks, carried out by police and council licensing officers last Wednesday, went under the code name of Operation Charlie.

Some 26 private hire vehicles and Hackney carriages were stopped as they drove about the roads of Milton Keynes.

Fourteen had a full mechanical examination at the council’s testing centre – and serious defects were found on all of them.

“They were immediately suspended from being used as private hire vehicles until the defects were rectified,” said a council spokesman.

One cab, licensed by South Northants District Council but driving in MK, was found to have 10 separate defects.

The council said the aim of the operation was to “proactively tackle” vehicle defects found among taxis in the city.

But it seems even police were surprised at the sheer volume of faults uncovered.

PS Simon Hills from the Roads Policing Unit said: “We are disappointed that the majority of private hire vehicles were carrying defects so serious the vehicles were suspended from being used in the private hire trade.

“It is vital that people have absolute confidence in the safety of private hire vehicles and Hackney taxis.”

Councillor Catriona Morris is chairman of the council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committees.

She said: “These routine council operations, in partnership with Thames Valley Police, are to ensure the safety of residents and visitors to Milton Keynes.”

Man charged with manslaughter after 23-year-old dies following incident in Farringdon Street


A 32-year-old old has been charged with manslaughter following the incident on August 26.

Alexander Bruce Thomson, 32, of Wandsworth has been remanded in custody and will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on August 29.

The victim, who died the day after the attack, was travelling with four other passengers in a mini-cab through the City following a night out. The men got into the cab near Farringdon station.

We want to hear from anybody who might have been in Farringdon Street and who may have seen what happened as the cab pulled up and stopped.

– DETECTIVE INSPECTOR KAZIM TOPRAK

At around 11.20pm the driver stopped the car and called the emergency services and the victim was taken to hospital. 

His immediate next of kin are aware, but are in the process of informing other close family members. A post-mortem examination will take place in due course.


The City Of London Police have put out his appeal on their website:

A 32-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter after a man died following an incident in a minicab in Farringdon Street on Friday, 26 August.

The victim, a 23-year-old man from London, was pronounced dead on Saturday evening, 27 August.

His immediate next of kin are aware, but are in the process of informing other close family members at this time. A post-mortem examination has been scheduled to take place at St Pancras mortuary in due course (date to be confirmed).

Alexander Bruce Thomson (23.02.1984) of Broomwood Road, Wandsworth was charged with manslaughter on Saturday 27 August and he has been remanded in custody to appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday 29 August.

Detectives from the City of London Police continue to appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the incident which happened after a minicab stopped in Farringdon Street on Friday night.

The victim was travelling with four other passengers following a night out having got into the cab near to Farringdon station.

At approximately 23:20hrs, the driver stopped the cab near to a bus stop by the junction with Old Seacol Lane, just north of Ludgate Circus, and emergency services were called. Both police and London Ambulance Service attended and the victim was taken to hospital, where he later died.

Officers arrested one of the passengers at the scene on suspicion of GBH and he was subsequently charged with manslaughter as above. No other arrests have been made at this time.

Detectives are urging any witnesses or anyone with information who may have been in Farringdon Street at the time the cab stopped to get in touch with them.

Detective Chief Inspector Perry Stokes, from the City of London Police said: “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the victim’s family at this time. This was a tragic incident where a young man has gone to enjoy a night out, but sadly he will not be returning home.

“I would urge anybody who was in the Farringdon Street area on Friday night who witnessed the minicab stopping and what happened after to get in contact with us to help with our enquiries. The area where the cab stopped was not far from Ludgate Circus and there would have been other people making their way home at the time who may have information that could help us piece together what happened.”

Anyone with information should contact the City of London Police on 0207 601 2222 or call Crimestoppers, which is completely anonymous, on 0800 555 111.

Economic Terrorism : 'To alter the order of society by non democratic means'


So here we have it, a non domiciled tax avoiding company using the odd bedfellows of Goldman Sachs and Saudi Arabia to fund a financial model that exploits the drivers and the benefit system this company contributes virtually nothing to, to crush all others in the market and when the desired monopoly exists to gouge the passenger.

Otherwise, there would be no other point to it all...would there?

Of course any kind of regulatory requirement to provide safety, adequate insurance or the ability to communicate to a standard, brings forth a lobbying effort and social media campaign on a massive scale, the same story repeats itself over and over worldwide.

So what's to do?
Well for a start, let's have some flyers funded (without any trade org logos) to hand out to everyone you see in an uber car, this needs three bullet points as follows:

1. The driver of this vehicle is likely to be earning less that the minimum wage, driving hours way beyond safe limits.

2. The company you are travelling with is losing billions to subsidise fares to destroy legitimate British tax paying businesses, their intentions are obvious.

3. You might be saving a few pounds today but if they succeed in their plans your ride will inevitably cost much more and you will have NO choice but to pay up.

                      'Think about it'!
                 .………………………………

Of course 90% won't give a monkeys, but some will at least pause and it may change their behaviour.

Every percentage counts and we are targeting the right audience.

I wil be asking my union to get behind this, ask yours please?

I'm Spartacus

via OneMK All Content Feed http://ift.tt/2brBuBw The X Factor is back and it is very much an 'old-look' series rather than a 'new-look' one.Loads of old faces from The X Factor's past are back, with judges including Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and of course the big man himself Simon Cowell.But just as importantly, Dermot O'Leary is back on presenting duties, taking over from Olly Murs and Caroline Flack.We begin with the auditions as usual and this is always a good opportunity to see the rubbish singers as well as the good...

The London Taxi Benevolent Association for War Disabled


The London black cab trade has experienced some very disheartening times over the last couple of years so to be able to give out positive news is a true delight for me.  

It seems a long time ago that I put out a number of tweets asking the trade to support us in our bid to win our section of the National Lottery Awards and you did not let us down. 

Readers – we WON!!
 
Out of 600 applicants in the Charity/Voluntary section we did it and much of this success is down to all of you who got behind us.  By the time you read this the results will have been shown on the BBC in a prime time slot.  

On a personal note I could not be more thrilled that the media and the public have had a timely reminder of what wonderful people you, the proud members of this exceptional trade, are, and what you represent.  I will never tire of writing about the loyalty, patriotism, generosity and kindness that epitomises the vast majority of London’s cab drivers.
 
It is always risky to single out names for particular thanks, but I am going to take a chance here.  If I omit anyone who really went the extra mile then I can only apologise.  All the orgs got behind us and we received good coverage in the relevant publications. It goes without saying that the charity’s committee worked hard to achieve this result.  Hailo, cab:app, and Ubiquitous all played their part.  Our brilliant volunteer drivers backed us to the hilt.
 
However there are some others that gave us absolutely key support:  Michael Calvey, cab driver and ex-para Pat G, the Mayfair Mob, London Taxi Radio, Millwall FC, UCGup and TaxiLeaks. You were behind us all the way and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Not only is this a victory for the charity,but for the trade as well. Enjoy the success – you earned it.

Frances Luczyc Wyhowska.
