No, not an aerobics regime but Sheffield's bus services. Here in the UK's frozen north the local council introduced bendibuses a while ago. These are double-length articulated jobs with a concertina mid section, which can lead to a bit of an aerial experience if you stand with one foot in each half.

Not content at that we also have twirly buses. Old age pensioners get free bus travel after the 9am rush. Anyone trying to use their pass before 9 get turned off with "Sorry love, you can't use that on this bus - it's too early".

Some buses are bendy and twirly. Will the fun never end?
