A bus might be green, but buses are not

London has just had mayoral elections and none of the prospects has been prepared to understand the nettle of transport.

Rather they have seemed greener, or freeze fares. These policies of intentionally under-investing will leave London an even worse city for travel.

It wasn't the very same with previous mayors, we've seen the misguided ideas of a blockage zone and bendy buses, the success of the "Boris Bikes" a cycle hire plan and the success and failure of huge underground train systems called Cross Rail, and no Cross Rail 2 One plan an exceptionally ambitious airport aka Boris Island was too rich for anyone's taste.

Exactly what we are left with for the new Mayor is a look at buses.

Oh dear.

A bus is an exceptionally efficient method to move a great deal of people. Buses however are not. They are a terrible system for getting people to work.
