They are sometimes refered to as guided busses, but why not use normal busses. The variation is slight, and i’m sure that Bus trams cost more as the overhead lines have to be sorted out. Why don’t they give us proper trams if thery are going to do it at all?

I don’t think that the Bus Eireann bus trams will run off overhead power lines. I’m pretty certain that they are proposing long low floor diesel / diesel-electric buses like this http://busexplorer.com/PHP/MidPage.php?id=870 or this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wright_StreetCar. They hope to start trials of these in Cork this summer so there won’t be any powerlines.
