Becca Horn issued a challenge on social networking site Facebook, urging people to leave their day riders after they’ve used them so others can use them without having to pay.

She wrote: “Calling all people that use the bus… I have come up with a great challenge for me and whoever else wants to join… I figured what’s the use in having day riders left in pockets when they can still be used?!?!?

“So from now on, I am going to leave all day riders (that I have finished with) by a bus stop so people are free to use them! Fingers crossed it may restore my faith in humanity!! I may even get left one myself one day!!!”

More than 700 people, including West Yorkshire residents, have shared the post since it was put up last week.

A dozen charities helping the homeless and needy have also shared the post, labelling it as a “good idea”.
