Considering China’s population, public transport should be a very tough issue to handle. So to save space, the country is considering building giant buses that travel on the streets, while cars pass underneath.
Just look at the photo to see what it is, and although it seems quite crazy, the idea of Shenzhen Future Partking Huashi Equipment sense. The idea is to exploit the space between cars and bridges, saving costs in the construction of exclusive tracks and minimizing the impact on congestion by allowing cars traveling under the bus – something that could help cities the worst traffic in the world.
Buses, 6 feet wide and between 4 and 4.5 meters high, would travel at an average speed of 40 km / h would have a capacity of 1,200 people. Also used power and solar panels to run, and the station or stop would be built on platforms at the sides of the street.
Probably will not work in places where the bridges are low and there are underpasses (which clog the Transantiago for example), but for now will be implemented in the Mentougou District of Beijing, where there will be 186 kilometers of track for these buses.
