Just to add to the above lists is the requirement to be able to drive in thick fog at line speed and still be able to stop perfectly at every station, and obey speed restrictions. It is an unfortunate fact that the first response every time this argument comes up is that someone compares bus drivers to train drivers. The two roles have completely different attributes and occupational risk/hazards and comparisons are not helpful to the development of the debate.
