Advantages: tend to run regular, you get a free paper, tickets allow you to go anywhere
Disadvantages: never seem to go where you want them to go, won't accept notes for a day ticket, don't tend to be very clean
well, leeds buses are in fact something totally different. It seems that the laws of the road no longer apply and if the bus is running late it may not always stop.
For some reason buses always go through red lights and always pull out in front of the traffic (hint, don't learn to drive in leeds, it is insane). Bus drivers will always pull away from the bus stop quickly just as you are trying to get up the stairs with arms full of stuff. It is always quite funny seeing someone else drop their things as long as it is happening to you.
Not all bus drivers are like that but some are not that helpful when you as the about things. Hint buy a weekly pass. it is often worth the money and it saves so much bother if you are in leeds for a while.
all i can say is get on a bus with an open mind and have fun. My most popular past time on the bus was sleeping. Also just be careful of the buses late at night. I got on one and a strange guy got his tackle out on it.
