Can some one explain to me what is so much better about the train than the bus ?

Lower maintenance and operation costs, increased life of equipment, higher passenger carrying capacity, greater potential for alternative energy sources (e.g., overhead electrification), just to name a few.

Granted trains aren't the answer on every transit route but on your high capacity main transit corridors they are far superior to buses. Using trains to the central hubs and buses, LRT and trams to lower density outlying areas is the design of most successful public transit systems worldwide... we are not exceptional.
