What it is:
Transit Explore Bus is a Beijing-based transportation company with a novel public transit concept: a giant electric bus that straddles roadways, enabling passenger cars to travel underneath it. The concept is 26 feet wide and 200 feet long, and can carry up to 1,400 passengers at a time -- which means it could replace as many as 40 traditional buses.
Why it's important:
This concept leverages existing infrastructure to solve two major problems in Beijing -- pollution and traffic -- in a completely different fashion than other mass transit concepts like Hyperloop. What's more, the designers report that this straddling bus would be cheaper than a subway to implement and would require far less maintenance and construction. Discuss on Facebook
