Car races, I mean bus races... or cow races??


At GDL we have a big problem with public transportation, not only are too many, and too inefficient bus lines at the city, but some of them are driven as if they were in Montecarlo. That's why all the buses are suppose to have an "Alarma Reguladora de Velocidad", some kind of gadget that emits a sound when the bus gets up to 65km/hr (40.39 miles per hour). But let's be honest, that hasn't make any difference, because has caused many accidents, as you may imagine. The drivers of this buses are nicknamed Vacunos, that means "bovines"... mocking about their behaviour behind the wheel, you know as if a cow would drive better than they. The question is still in the air.

I love the logo on the back of the bus, although it took me a while to figure out what it was!

That explains a lot. You must be trying to reduce the number of buses and al the drivers are now coming to drive in London!

Welcome aboard!
