China’s Straddling Bus May Help Cut Congestion and Pollution.
The elevated bus – designed to increase road space – drives over traffic, allowing traffic to pass underneath.
Construction costs less than 1/5th of a subway, and busses can be built in 1 year. Each bus has a capacity of 1,200 people. An elevator allows passengers to board from street level.
Trial operations are to begin at the end of this year.
