As it should be. Buses are useful for general city commuting, nothing long. Seriously, fuck buses.

The scary/sad part, she isn't bad but as far as being Celine Dion it's no good.

A 28 year old from Waihi.....it's possible!

Although he doesn't look like a bogan.

Agreed entirely. I think buses are only justifiable on lowly patronised routes. Basically, I believe all transport modes should be co-ordinated rather than competing.

Planes: Predominantly long haul routes, short routes where time is of the essence, and routes over water or where land transport is clearly rather impractical.
Rail: Short and medium haul intercity, long haul luxury/tourist, and urban commuting.
Trams: High use inner suburban and city commuting.
Ferries: Pretty fucking obvious.
Buses: Outer suburban and rural routes without sufficient traffic to justify a railway or tramway, feeding the rail network (or, where applicable, ferries/planes).

Waihi? Aren't they all hippies? He'll probably be David Gilmour or Roger Waters.

Again it's a case of him sounding alright, but not as someone impersonating Johnny Cash.

And if any government enacted legislation to encourage sensible transport planning, they'd be called authoritarian or communist.
