This looks far more accurate of day to day in city transport. Picks fotos show the nice buses that are used for the long distance travel routes, and I will admit they are far nicer and safer than the inner city death traps.

No doubt about that.

If I do a Preventive maintenance inspection (PMI) in that unit for sure I'll send it to the dead line, it's missing the curve side front turn light.... That's my duty here in US,to inspect transit buses.

And for sure will recommend the operation manager to fire that drive, just take a look... parked way too far from the sidewalk so that a motoconcho can pass the bus and kill the poor elder passenger.

also the driver didn't use the bus kneeling for an old man!

I love my country!

DR is 50 years behind from US in services and technology.

How they adopt for handicapped passengers in Curitiba Brazil. They can then roll onto the bus with a simple ramp:

Hmm, now I know why OMSA buses aren't built on kneeling system and wheel chair ramp system...

They are manufactured in Brazil.

My uncle's transportation... "Carro cambiao" That's the way we call those cars originally manufactured for Japan market, the steering wheel and all driver component were located in the right side of the vehicle.
