Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those eyes?

Gosh all git up, how'd they get that size?
A liana (creeper) is any of various long-stemmed, woody vines that are rooted in the soil at ground level and use trees, as well as other means of vertical support, to climb up to the canopy to get access to well-lit areas of the forest. The French for "liana" is "liane".
Avec les Lianes, vous pouvez compter sur un bus :

What is absolutely clear is that there is a style, a "panache" about French public transport that is second to none. Of course the whole caboodle is heavily subsidised. fbb does not have the exact figures for Dijon, but for a typical network, the fare covers no more than 30% of the real cost of a journey. The French are more heavily taxed than we Brits but they do "bus" in style.
Those who consider that UK bus services need to be better could well consider the French model; but before progressing with too much enthusiasm, it is wise to consider the cost!
