Ed, have you lost all of your marbles? The city has 1.6 million inhabitants with another million in the near vicinity. The roads have exclusive bus lanes and are capable of taking the 400 passenger articulated vehicles that connect with the tube way at convenient points to get people to 90%of the city. Curitiba's solution could never work here because we don't have the numbers, the wide roads, the 400 seat buses, the tube connecting stations nor in fact the tubes. In fact the only thing we share with Curitiba is the traffic jams. The idea is sound, just not practical with our current road infrastructure. Still, it would make a good homework project for your sixth form - design a Curitiba style public transport system for Guernsey that will cost next to nothing, be environmentally friendly and cater for the few thousand people going into town between 8.00 and 9.00 five days a week.
