MAX or Mad Max? That is the question

‘What is the difference between a steel wheel and a rubber wheel?’ That has been one of the responses offered to (over)simplify the debate over light rail and bus rapid transit in Perth. My answer suggests it’s not really a question of light rail or bus modes, it’s a question of types of urban development – rail-based or road based, and they are very different.

The Professor is spot on. No developers will ever trust in the bus option because routes can change. Not so for steel tracks where the route is certain. The bus option is a foolish compromise indeed.
