Okay there is quite alot going on with alcohol law reform but is it true if your a passenger on a bus you cannot drink alcohol? Seems people could be pinged for it:

Looks that way, once they close the loophole

So what would the point of the bus trip be then? In my experience the whole point is to get as plastered as you can on the bus, go wreck havoc on some poor small overcrowded bar and then go top up the tank and do it again

Like people on rugby trips will take any notice. I dont have a problem with piss trips as long as the driver does not join in.
There are lots of laws that are totally ignored like wearing cycle helmets, traveling at 30 kph thru roadworks this just joins the list.
Just got to hope the passengers dont do dumb things like mooning cars and throwing glass out of the windows.

As long as the driver isn't drinking or the people who are drinking don't decide to push the driver out the window for a laugh I guess I can't see any issue with it...

way all these wowser clowns are going you will need to go to a pharmacy with a script to get some piss. Signed by the doc because you are a piss freak.
Like binge drinking is a modern problem who knows if the Vikings didnt binge drink.
Binge drink is a stupid overused term for drinking to get pissed. Well wowsers people have drunk to get drunk for millenniums and they will continue to do until the sun runs out of fuel and we all die.
This Friday night I am going to binge drink until I fall over because its a special occasion.

Does this only apply to commercial bus operators who tell people to bring their own alcohol or does it apply to public buses too? I'm just wondering why it's okay for passengers in taxis to drink alcohol but not passengers in buses.

It's not OK to drink in a taxi. That's why so many people like my father ;) he's a taxi driver.

Got a bit of free piss a couple weeks ago. Not bad, I must say.
