Buses are everywhere at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
Thousands have dotted the streets of Rio for the past two weeks, serving as the main transportation for athletes, officials and media to and from venues across the city.
The system works, for the most part, but there have been plenty of glitches, from schedules that don't always jibe with the buses' arrivals and departures to drivers don't know where they're going.
Another day, another lost bus driver in Rio....

Officials and media aren't the only ones having trouble with wrong-way bus drivers.

One of the biggest complaints has been the aggressive driving; blowing through red lights, missing cars and poles by inches at high speeds, taking curves so fast the bus starts leaning.
It seems my Rio bus driver is acting out his own version of 'Speed' so if something happens, peace and love now and ever after.

There also have been some serious cases of road rage, including this all-timer:

In case the driving isn't dangerous enough, a media bus became a target early in the Games:

Sure, the system has some issues _ unavoidble and self-created _ but it has mostly worked so far.
