Brisbane busways which is why they going to the double artics and
converting to a trunk + feeder method - while still holding out against
That would be the same RTBU in Queensland that allows rear-door boarding in
Brisbane while declaring it utterly dangerous in Sydney. At least they have
the weak excuse that they are different state branches, not like the clowns
at TWU in NSW where NSW and ACT are the same branch and they've allowed
rear-door loading in ACT but declared it dangerous in NSW (while at the
same time also happy with it in every other state). Strangely, they're all
fine with it in trams. And they wonder how unions bring industries to their
knees and lose all their members their jobs anyway.
