    That's one firm. Some of them pay quite well, many don't. Even then, £500pw is well shy of £28k p.a., and almost certainly includes shift allowance and bonuses.


    There's over a dozen bus operators in London, all undercutting each other. GoAhead is one of the better ones to work for.

    For someone that doesn't use Google or work as a bus driver you seem to be a bit of an expert on bus driver salaries and working conditions.

    Awful lot of petty arguing on here today.

    Can't everyone be as agreeable and amenable like wot I is?

    Just remember, worse things happen at sea.

    52 weeks times £500 is £2600 .

    The "average" bus driver earns £28k

    I am not a bus driver. I have driven a bus, once for Arriva, and once for MetroLine. I know a few people who have driven for bus companies in London. It is possible to earn decent money - or it was. But it's a **** job, wouldn't want to do it for any length of time tbh.

    Which means, even if it's true, that an awful lot of people earn an awful lot less. Why don't you give it go?

    Indeed. Driving a ferry in rough weather is probably even less fun than driving a bus in rush hour. Nice view from the bridge though.

    And The Titanic sinking in the Pacific Ocean in 1927 with the loss of all 123 people on board.

    It's still never been explained.

    You were probably the last white British bus driver in London they don't hire whites anymore.

    I certainly wouldn't go on strike after almost a year of lockdowns to **** everyone over in the hope I'll get a pay rise .

    Unite and bus drivers are ****s if they go through with it.

    Politics is just another holding pen, bizarre that people cant see it, youd think they'd eventually realise that nothing ever changes for the better. The game is designed in a way that it can only get worse or stay the same.

    Maybe they just have nothing better to do than invest in the temporary characters and issues that the system tells them are important. It was only 5 minutes ago it was Corbyn and May, in another 5 minutes Boris and Trump will be yesterdays news, and what will you have achieved by following along and arguing about it?

    We are bickering about immigrants driving buses with no passengers for the best part of a year as London is in lockdown then striking when the city opens again ****ing over bus ****ers and schoolkids reliant on them to get to school or their chappy mindless jobs.

    Boris Johnson no doubt goes to the same Masonic baby raping orgies as Rodney Starmer.

    Choice is an illusion, not sure what happened with Brexit though I didn't think we would be allowed to leave .
