To be fair, this type of bus service is not a new idea for Cork. Its referred to in the CASP (p40, 44 and 140 and Appendix 1). The general thrust being that, even with the type of densification envisaged in the scheme, Cork was not likely to see the type of population density required to justify LRT. Hence ‘guided bus’ or segregated busways.

But, while painting a bus in luas colours and covering the wheels and calling it a “bus-tram” is plain offensive to the intelligence of the general public, if they can generate a fast, efficient and effective solution to the citys public transport needs, it might be worth pretending that the emporer is wearing clothes, after all. Or a disguised loaf is better than no bread …
