From P.C.:-

COULD someone tell me what right the local council or government has to give priority to buses over any other road user?

In most cases, the bus companies are privately owned, profit making businesses, so I find it hard to differentiate between them and any other kind of business.

Why should privately owned taxis, haulage firms and the like not get the same treatment as the bus companies?
