Subject to statutory limitations, carriers are free to include such terms as they please in their contracts with their passengers, but certain terms are usually included.
Terms that reasonable care will be taken for the passenger's safety and that once on board he will be carried with reasonable expedition are likely to be implied. However timetables and other notifications of a time of departure are no warranty that departure will take place at that time; and the issue of a ticket does not of itself impose any liability on the carrier if the conveyance does not start when expected1.
