Finnish city removes Z from bus route names

Finnish city of Lappeenranta decided to remove the letter Z from the names of bus routes, writes Yle. This decision was made by the transport company after complaints from some residents of the city. There were not so many of them, but now all bus routes under the letter Z have become X.
