I agree. I often see fancy busses driving around with a load of passengers that would fit in a 15 passenger or even a minivan. If they used minivans they could get much better pickup and drop off locations as well as more specific time schedules. You could have 30 minivans for the price of one bus. The cost problem would be with 30 drivers vs 1 but if you needed 0 drivers for 30 vans, problem solved.
