Innovation is the only way out of tough jams.

And few problems are more frustrating and impeding than traffic.

A company in China has designed and developed plans to launch a giant bus that would be elevated above the highway, straddling rails and even allowing other cars on the highway to pass underneath.

The futuristic rail-bus could carry as many as 1,400 and may someday prove to be a great solution for alleviating traffic – all without the need to build expensive new infrastructure.

via the London Guardian:

A Beijing company has unveiled spectacularly futuristic designs for a pollution-busting, elevated bus capable of gliding over the nightmarish mega-jams for which urban China has become notorious.

Plans for the so-called Transit Explore Bus or TEB were showcased earlier this month at a technology expo in the Chinese capital.

The “straddling bus”, which owes more to Blade Runner than China’s car-clogged highways, is supported by two legs that run along rails laid along the roadside.

Those legs allow the TEB’s giant frame to glide high above the gridlock at speeds of up to 60km per hour. Equally, vehicles that are less than two metres high will be able to drive freely underneath the bus, even when it is stationary.

“The biggest advantage is that the bus will save lots of road space,” Song Youzhou, the project’s chief engineer, told Xinhua, China’s official news agency.

It isn’t clear when the inventive bus could appear on Chinese roads, but it may be a worthwhile solution.

Experts claim it will be drastically less expensive than expanding underground subway tunnels or adding lanes.

Here’s a video of how the Transit Explore Bus might look like in action:

Instead, this bohemoth could be added to existing roadways with the simple addition of rail, and may prove to help with traffic woes.

What do you think?

Can highway travel be improved, or is everything doomed to simply grind to a halt?

Meanwhile, self-driving cars and other forms of automation are geared up to take over travel and revolutionize, for better or worse, they way people and stuff gets moved around.

  2. PO'd Patriot says:

    Well I got to thinkin’ about this wonderin’ if the floor of that bus would be of clear glass…. might get to check out some petticoats. Upon second thought with all this Transgender BS, might be best just to go around.

    • hammerhead says:

      Thats a scary thought, didnt need that visual stuck in my head , hahaha.

      I doubt this bus ever gets off the ground.
      Brings new meaning to getting run over by a bus.
      Gives me tunnel vision.
      I wonder if it has “overdrive” ?

      nuff said

    • Jonny V says:

      Can you imagine that huge bus zooming around with one of them no-driving orientals at the wheel?? Fuck me! It’d be a fuckin catastrophe!

      You know how to blind an oriental? Put ’em behind a steering wheel LOL!!!

    Off topic….there was a Grizz on old hwy 2 sitting in the road (at least they claim its a road, more like a collection of pot holes). They can sure cover a lot of ground very Fast when they run off. Its bear season (not Grizz…there protected )now , but they taste like greasy dog food, so I’ll just go hiking with my new Magnum Research BFR handgun…guess what cal. I pour and reload, so cost isn’t a factor.

    • hammerhead says:

      Ive had a black bear around lately , but im told they arent in the area.
      So must be i was mistaken when i chased it off my porch , lol.
      Dont argue with a government official , they are informed , your a dumbass !

    • Dave
      Only eat bear during berry season… only time it tastes really really good. Unless you are hungry and drown it in… can’t think of anything offhand.

  5. Just Me says:

    It will never happen, for 1 reason…. Highway overpasses. (Crunch!!)

  6. Braveheart1776 says:

    The bus idea I don’t think will ever fly, especially if it’s made by Chinese. They’re already having trouble with the ‘self-driving’ cars so that will be a flop also.

    • dave in idaho says:

      Self driving trucks from hub to hub will be here real soon. You would be surprised at the technology already in all the new trucks on the road. research todays standard truck technology package before you comment. One truck drone operator can handle a dozen or more simultaneously as sensors in the truck do the basic stop and go with navigation. Local delivery is a ways off.

    • Overwatch says:

      Has anyone considered the specter of Orientals driving a bus this friggin big?? Holy Shit!!! I’ve watched them take twenty minutes to parallel park a Corolla in Boston. We’re going to have to make DWO a felony.

  7. aljamo says:

    Why do the Chinese need this gizmo, are they not included in the greatly reduce the population agenda worldwide? Oh yeah, that scenario starts with the elimination of white people first, those that reject NWO dictates and actually believe they have any rights left.

  8. YoMamma says:

    And then Jihidi Mohammed drives his truck loaded with explosives under this thing and BANG! 1,400+ dead/injured…..NOT a good idea.

    Plus, just imagine getting in an accident with another vehicle under this thing, or just WITH this thing.

  9. Jackson says:

    Why not just put them in cattle cars? And if a few of those cattle cars “accidently” wind up at the slaughterhouse, well, just make the most of the situation and process them, can them, and send them to America!
    I mean, if you are talking about a fucking bus that carries 1,400 carcasses at a pop, then you have enough surplus population to make up for a few errant wayward cattle cars, right?

    Just trying to help.

    Easy way to avoid all of this. Live in the country!

    Dave in I’d ho. how can this truck go hub to hub. But not peddle locally. Either it can drive or not. I say it is possible now. If planes can auto pilot and it’s far more complicated to fly a plane than drive a truck. Any farm boy can drive a truck. Pilots need an education and flight time with skilled pilots. There are hundreds of switches in a planes cockpit. A truck is only slightly harder than driving a car IMO. Steering wheel accelerator brakes and clutch which never gets used just to start and stop. Telling me a truck driver has harder job than pilot is bullshit.

  12. Asshat says:

    I sit in trafipfic all the time it don’t bother me I’m on the clock and time and half pay so I hope it comes to a standstill.

  13. What happens when a Mexican marries a Chinaman??? You get a kid who can steal a vehicle but can’t drive it!!?

    • buttcrackofdoom says:

      or a black marries a mexican…..a kid that’s too LAZY to steal…..what happened when those biotech guys crossed an onion with a donkey?… an ass that would bring TEARS to yer eyes…..oh, and what would happen if you crossed a rooster with a telephone pole?…a cock that could reach out and touch someone.

    Start allowing people to work remotely. Go to 4 ten hour days. Problem solved.
