Touring: Buses
Bus routes form an important part of the world transport network. Most have heard of the legendary Greyhound bus routes of America, with some buses covering thousands of kilometers across a country where big frame railways simply do not exist. Australia also has a Greyhound network and the distances covered are of just as epic proportion as those in the USA. To travel along the Bruce highway from Sydney to Cairns up the east coast can take days.

The famous red double-decker buses of London cover virtually every square mile of the English capital. Bombay, an ex-British colony also has its own set of red double- deckers. Some of these buses have an open back for ease of embarkation and disembarkation.

In the countries of the third world, bus routes are subject to constant change and in the monsoon season in some countries, buses become stranded for days at a time. Many of these buses are old and poorly maintained and so breakdowns are both frequent and inevitable. Potholed roads can mean that it takes up to 75% longer for a bus to traverse a similar distance of neatly paved highway.
