Now engineers in China, the world’s most populated country, have come up with a way to overcome the problem of getting around in traffic. Designs for a new elevated bus has been unveiled at a tech expo in China, which will apparently be able to carry 1,200 passengers over the top of cars and let traffic to pass underneath it.
“With a carrying capacity of 1,200 people at a time, the TEB has the same functions as the subway while its cost of construction is less than one fifth that of the subway. Its construction can be finished in one year.” said Bai Zhiming, engineer in charge of the TEB project said in a YouTube video showing an interview with CCTV News. The first tests of the bus are scheduled to start trail operation in Qinhuangdao City, in north China’s Hebei Province, in the second half of this year.
