Boats and buses
« on: December 17, 2010, 01:50:48 PM »
What i wondered,

We have buses, we have boats. But buses can't go on a boat.
Could this be possible? If so, i would like it!
That way your bus can go on a ferry, so you don't have to build a bridge.  ;)

The effect of busses going on a boat is the same as having the passengers transferred at a dock unto ferry and then transferred back. No point in putting additionally busses onto a ferry.

what i meant is that the bus goes on the boat, doesn't let the passengers out and when the boat reaches the other side the bus goes on.
And the question was is it possible?

And the answer is: no, it is not possible.
