They are in normal use between Utrecht Centraal and the University & Hospital. They have 27 of those busses. During peak times they are taking off each 4-5 minutes.

They're common in Utrecht. 27 are contstucted for the GVU. Most of them are used on the line towards the Uithof. There is another biarticulated bus in the Netherlands. It is this bus called Phileas. Only twelve are build, one of them is 24 meters long, all others are 18 meters.

Who needs light rail when you've got buses like that?

Here in Brazil, buses with trailer (called here "Romeu-e-Julieta") were used in the 1970's in the South. Below, this is a pic this bus with trailer.

It`s the lone type of bendy bus that looks actually comfortable to ride (I ain't joking).
