Melbourne's buses are not the best feature of its public transport landscape. The trams and trains seem to be quite good to use, based on my experiences there, but the buses are pretty awful. I took the smart bus from Melbourne International Airport to Broadmeadows, and it was full of graffiti and some of the seats were smashed up. There was also a drug addict across from us - quite a different experience on the buses compared to the trams and trains.

No, I don't think so. We already have well-developed threads on trains and trams, so we put independent bus thread
