A system of reservations would of course do that very well too! The point was that it would avoid people a stop or two along from a busy stop having no chance (which would be discriminatory because some people couldn't walk that far).The idea that people at every stop should have an equal chance is nonsense. I believe that many bus companies will have to look at introducing pick up only restrictions for the first few miles of routes coming out of town in order that those who need to travel the whole length of the route will be prioritised over those who are either within comfortable walking distance or who could take a different bus that only goes half way and is therefore quieter.
I wonder if I should get coding something! Though Stagey could easily just use the Megabus booking system and load other routes onto it.
