The photo features a green 11c ticket, a blue 15c ticket and a red 18c ticket. The green and blue tickets had “by using public transport you reduce traffic on the roads” written on them to entice locals to travel by bus. The red one also a request written on it. “Passengers are kindly requested to refrain from disposing ticket on the bus.”

Locals shared memories in the comments section, describing it as “the good old days,” and an aspect of the past that has long been forgotten.
