PLEASE HOLD ON THE BUS IS ABOUT TO MOVE

Londoners choosing to take the bus have recently been hearing a new announcement warning them when the bus is about to move …. Once the bus is already moving, understandably this has caused some frustration amongst passengers.

The announcements are part of a month-long trial being run by TFL to try and reduce the number of injuries. several people are injued every day on londons busses as a result of acceleration and breaking.

However, most of these announcements are being heard once the bus is already moving TFL have announced they are working on refining the timings of the safety announcement. In the meantime, Londoners have taken to twitter to show their frustration.

"Please hold on, the bus is about to move" repeated every five yards. Whoever thought that one up ought to be tied to a seat and made to endure it for the rest of their lives.

Need to pass my driving test so I don’t hear ‘please hold on the bus is about to move’ ever again.
