When we were in Warrington last year I asked drivers on the local buses
if my Scottish card was valid, fully expecting that it wouldn't be, but
hey, nothing ventured, etc. Of the four buses we travelled on, two
accepted it without question, one ummed and ahhed a bit before letting
me on, only one driver refused it. So if there's a common company
policy, not everybody seems to know it.

¬*It's not a company policy, but a UK-wide one: Scottish Twirly cards
aren't¬* valid in England, and vice versa. So, only the last of your
four drivers¬* was correct.

You're no doubt right, but I thought it worth a try..! 3 out of 4
isn't bad..!

Can't think why all of them aren't valid UK-wide, though.

Because transport is devolved to Scotland?

Presumably the same applies to Wales and Ulster?
