Getting them to pay their fare would be even more of a challenge, given
the attitude that most of the scrotes we carried had.


They would have to fit the bus with a rail station style entrance which is
activated by a card of some description, although it might slow down
boarding
somewhat.


With no actual staff present to stop them, they'd just leap over the
gate, or get on by the exit door if there is one. Also how would
disabled passengers board with no staff to assist..?


Hmmmm.... it seems I have not thought this through.

Possibly, although I don't think many drivers have room in their houses
for the full aircraft-style simulator cockpit you'd need; you couldn't
do it with a laptop screen and a joystick, too difficult to get all
round vision. With some of the cabs I've been in, it's hard enough when
you're actually sitting there..!
