Yes. Saw it done on Thursday.
Travelling on the 440 along Parramatta Road in a westerly direction. Passenger gets on, inserts magnetic-stripe ticket into machine. Something wrong with the ticket – machine chokes, won’t give it back, machine out of service. Driver stops bus, switches off the ignition for a couple of seconds. Starts engine again, ticket machine initializes, spits out faulty ticket.
Had to laugh.
