Any copyright issues using such an iconic image, or did Paul and Ringo give their permission?

They aren’t using the actual image so there is no copyright infringement. You cannot copyright an “idea”. I am more concerned by the bus driving down the middle of the road with no driver.

Well as far as I know none, as they would have to be today were of colour, so unless a printer error, no copyright infringement, but likely inspired by such ticket to Ryde legends. .

Why wouldn’t they give their permission? They have been strong supporters of local buses for a very long time.

But it doesn’t, does it? Virtually every day there’s a report of some sort of incident involving, speed, careless/dangerous driving, drink/drug driving. Offenders are banned and fined,but still it keeps happening.
