A bus by any other name 10 April 2017 – AITPM News

Last week we ran a story on the guided electric vehicle scheme proposed for Parramatta Road in Sydney. It was also being called the Trackless Tram.
This prompted a wave of sometime passionate response from transport professionals about whether you can call this service a tram or is it “Just” a bus.
Given that the system is multi carriage suggests that ‘Just a bus” is misleading.
But there are undoubtedly some feelings that if it is not on rails it will never work.
Part of our discussion with Ken Welsh covered this issue.
