China's "Straddling" Bus

Every now and then, someone comes up with a successful, yet zany idea to solve a problem.
This time, it's China.
Apparently traffic in China is just awful.

This bus, called the 3d Fast Bus, actually straddles regular traffic and glides above it.  

It can carry around 1200-1400 passengers and helps reduce congestion.


Yes, it looks more like a train, since it will glide on a track.
And it will be solar and electrical powered,
(which means zero carbon emissions).

It costs a LOT less than building a subway system.

I love it!

Man! It looks so space-age. Isn't it amazing what people can come up with to make life better for everyone?
