'Bus' in China would straddle traffic
One of the biggest buzzes in transportation news recently is coming out of China, where the Shenshen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Co. has proposed building a "bus" that regular vehicles can literally drive beneath.
This isn't just a paper design. A pilot project is planned for a district in Beijing.
The chairman of the company made a presentation on the new transport during the 13th Beijing International High-tech Expo this spring. The blog ChinaHush posted a story about the bus last month. According to a translation by ChinaHush of the presentation, the bus could carry 1200 people, travel about 25 mph and run on electricity and solar power. It would be about 20 feet wide and 13 feet high.
According to an interview with the designer in the New York Times, the bus "could replace up to 40 conventional buses."
