Elevated Bus That Drives Above Traffic Jams

China’s traffic jams are legendary. One jam even has its own Wikipedia page dedicated to it (China National Highway 110 traffic jam. Look it up). But the country’s epic gridlock problems might soon be a thing of the past if plans for this amazing elevated bus go ahead.

Take a look at the pictures below to see for yourself what we mean. It’s known as the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) and it could very well be the future of public transport. It’s only a concept for the moment but a working mini model was recently presented at the 19th China Beijing International High-Tech Expo. The bus will be able to carry up to 1200 passengers and will take them to work and back by literally driving over the traffic. It’s a brilliant idea that could potentially alleviate congestion and reduce pollution in the world’s most populous country. If approved it could also be ready in as little as one year’s time.

sounds like a good idea but will need to be a bit higher for semi's and other large vehicles

Good idea in concept but can't see it working in reality, all it would take is a vehicle to be slightly out of lane and kaboooom!!

There would probably be high rails installed on the sides of road to prevent that.

Trains don't bend like Rubber. It would be straight edges, if cars are under that train during a turn it would be crazy dangerous!
