In Tasmania, Australia, Tiarnah Fahey, was on her way to school one morning when her bus pass malfunctioned. When the bus's validation machine refused to take her card, the bus driver refused to allow the 4-year-old onto the bus. Fortunately, her 13-year-old sister was with her. She escorted the girl on her 20 minute walk to school then walked another hour to get to her own school. After their mother complained, the government-owned bus company agreed to give Tiarnah a new bus pass.
