Categorisation

Peter has suggested that the automatic categorisation of articles including this template within Category:Public transport isn't useful, saying "articles should be explicitly added to 'public transport' if required - most should be in 'buses', 'trams etc.". I'm not sure I agree - I think all of these articles should be in the public transport category as well as their own modal categories. I've reverted for now, but happy to discuss it.

I agree with Peter that the pages should not be automatically put in the public transport category. The pages should only be listed in their corresponding mode category, otherwise overcategorization occurs: see also http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Categories#Over-categorization .
