And, yet again, you entirely miss the point. I'll repeat once more: the bus you're complaining about is NOT 'the' Van Hool bus, it's the specific design AC Transit, and only AC Transit requested. Any other transit authority could specify a completely different bus. You're pinning this supposed dislike of these buses down them being Van Hools, while it has been explained to you time and again that that is not the case. Yet you keep implying it, and that's getting quite tiring, quite honestly.I think most transit authorities are smart enough to know that passengers won't like the buses! There have been plenty of complaints to AC Transit (I've followed this stuff too) and they don't seem to want to listen.
Van Hools are certainly not "The Best" buses (in my opinion of course) for transit service in the Bay Area. We're not Europe! But Chris Peeples seems to think it is Europe. The very fact that people complained to the district about them is a dead giveaway that the Van Hools are not the best bus! They could have bought buses from Gillig in Hayward, which I'm sure the public would have like much better
