Fare Freeze

Kathryn Quinn

Long-suffering commuters in Poland have threatened a fares strike after their bus turned up covered in frost - on the inside.

Angry passengers - who'd been queuing in Chelmno, in temperatures of minus 10 degrees Celsius - said the bus was colder in the inside than it had been outside.

"Everywhere was ice, frost and snow. There was no heater and no way of keeping warm," said one.

"The window was open and when I tried to close it the driver told me not to because I might break the window.

"It was ridiculous. There we were sitting in a freezing bus, window open, snow and ice inside and no one was going to do anything about it.

"If this is the best they can do we should stop paying their fares.

"Behind me was a mother with her child and he kept saying how cold he was.

The buses here haven't been replaced since 1984, it's an absolute disgrace.

"Who or what the hell do they think we are - animals?

"I don't see why we have to pay for this, and nor do other passengers," the furious passenger added.

A spokesman for the bus company said: "It was a bus that had been brought into service at short notice. We apologise for the conditions."
