Re : Bendy Buses
San Francisco's Muni does quite well with articulated buses. The system does have several sizes of shorter buses for lighter loads and routes that snake along the sides of various hills.

Re : Streetcar / LRV length limits
Another limitation on consist length is the power capacity of the overhead wiring. If the trains try to draw too much power they may either [a] not run or [b] blow a fuse. I've seen this happen with a model railroad and have heard that power capacity may be why SFMuni keeps their LRV's in singles and pairs.
