TWO bendy-buses have arrived in the island ahead of a month-long trial.
The two articulated vehicles arrived on the Ben-my-Chree at 7.30pm last night and have started driver and fitter training today.
It is expected the trial will begin later this month to decide whether they are suitable for use on Manx roads and whether the Department of Community Culture and Leisure should go ahead with a purchase.
Proposals to introduce bendy-buses for use on school runs have sparked controversy. Some have expressed fears over safety given that there will be standing room only for up to 90 school children.
