Roach-infested minibuses

I FIND the proposal by the Chairman of the Association of Green Minibus Operators for luxury 20-seat minibuses amusing.

The chairman thinks luxury buses with reclining seats will convince residents in certain areas of Hong Kong to abandon their cars.

I take the No 1 minibus from the Peak to Central almost every work day. However, I try not to go home by minibus. The roaches that infest many of the minibuses come out after dark. Forget the reclining seats.

I would happily take the current green minibuses home if I could feel relatively sure that the passenger next to me would not be a cockroach.
