The bus drivers are on the street, driving and fulfilling their duties, but they are not charging the passengers anything for the rides.
They are on strike due to a new rival that has just launched its operations on the same route. The new bus line Megurin overlapping those of Ryobi and offering cheaper fare option.
The Japanese bus drivers ensure that the passengers aren’t harmed in any way, so they started offering free rides, which means workers are working free. Their protest is coming at the cost of their wages.
