• A single fare is to be considered by Glasgow Corporation Transport in an attempt to simplify fare collection and remove the problem of overriding by passengers paying a 6d fare. Cllr. Walter Wober, chairman of the transport committee, proposes a Is fare for any distance—the present fare structure is three fares of 6d, Is and Is 6d.
Although some loss of passengers might occur, the longer distance passengers would benefit, and the system would assist the programme for the introduction of one-man buses, said air. Wober.
The committee has also asked officials from the transport department to report on the possibility of introducing tokens. These would be sold from suitable service centres or by wall machines at selected spots. To date, Sunderland and Belfast are the only UK undertakings committed to tokens, and Sunderland has introduced zonal fares after operating a flat fare system.
