|The queuing system for buses, trolleybuses and trams was instituted in 1940 in Britain. Prior to that it was the fittest who got on the bus or tram first. My mother told me that once when she and her friend, each with a push chair and young child, were trying to get on a tram in Croydon, the conductor refused to let any one else on until they had boarded.|
Some time after the war, the regulation requiring people to form a queue at a bust stop was repealed, however, most people still queue as it is the fairest way to board buses.
Queueing for cinemas shops, etc., still seems to happen, although I d0 not think that there is any regulation to enforce it.
