    China tests new bus that can straddle cars


    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/china-transit-elevated-bus_us_57a20b7de4b0693164c36b06?ir=Green&section=us_green&utm_hp_ref=green

    Engineers in China finally took their innovative elevated bus for a test spin in Hebei province this week.

    As the photos [in the article] show, the bus is designed to straddle roadways, allowing smaller vehicles to pass underneath.

    The electric-powered “Transit Elevated Bus,” or TEB, can hold up to 300 passengers, the BBC reports. It is 72 feet long and 25 feet wide.

    While this was merely a test run, the concept has already sparked interest in Brazil, France, India and Indonesia, China’s Xinhua News reported.

They were laughed at or pelted with stones." - Dostoevsky, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man

    1. Wow! That seems more like a subway train than a bus.
