Our local (Figueras) town had the bus and railway stations alongside each other. You could arrive on a train from Paris and walk five minutes to catch a bus.
So when the idiots who plan such things decided where to build the new TGV station, they put it 5kms away, thus requiring a shuttle bus service from new to old railway station + bus station, and adding half an hour to a journey.
This is called, I believe "progress" although most of us can describe it with several succint four-letter words.
Further evidence that mankind's intellect is not evolving.
