I didn't expect galicia to be such a public transport powerhouse

You need the buses to go to all the tiny villages to let grandma go shopping. They are already part of the landscape. Especially all kind of weird bus stops in the middle of nowhere. It was a national disgrace the day a British multinational (Arriva) bought the most loved local bus line (Castromil) with such a defining national name : the Castro culture was the most important period of ancient Galician identity and the time at which we got our name.

Arriva isn't British. They've bought out our local bus services as well.

I wonder how it compares to Portugal directly below? Is this a Portugaliza thing or is Portugal just as sparse as Spain but Galicia is better than both?
