Hi all, is there a way to increase the frequency of each passenger scanning there pass when they get on the bus as some passengers just walk on without scanning so is there a way to have it so all the passengers scan there pass when they get on? btw i want to do this for the ALX400 London spec.

This is set by the ticket pack, not by the bus. There's a description at the top of the default ticket packs:
Code:
[ticketpack]        Definiert allgemeine Eigenschaften des Ticket-Systems
{stamper_prop}      Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass beim Einsteigen abgestempelt wird
{ticketbuy_prop}    Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass beim Einsteigen eine Fahrkarte gekauft wird
{chattiness}        Wieviel reden die Fahrgäste? (Begrüßung, Danke...)
{whinge_prop}       Wieviel meckern die Fahrgäste?

Passengers scanning their passes isn't technically a thing in OMSI, given it's based on the 1980s BVG ticketing system. As such, the passengers are stamping their invisible tickets with the time and date of first use using the card reader. I can't remember if the chance of ticket stamping applies to the passengers that don't buy a ticket, or all passengers that board...

The four numbers underneath [ticketpack] are :
(1) probability of being stamped on boarding (0.0 to 1.0)
(2) probability of buying a ticket from the driver (0.0 to 1.0 - I find 0.07 i.e. 7% works well on some maps)
(3) probability of chattiness when boarding (0.0 to 1.0)
(4) probability of how much passengers complain (0.0 to 1.0)
back up the ticket pack file before editing so you can always recover to original values !
