動画「中国の1200人乗りのバス」 / China Straddling Bus

北京国際ハイテク博に出展されたこのバスは、1階部分を車が通行でき、2階部分では1,200人を輸送できるそうです。


バスは渋滞の根源になってますし、こういう発想はユニークで良いと思います。
先日記事にした時速4,000キロのリニアモーターカー(アメリカまで2時間!)といい、こういう良い意味で常識外れの発想が出てくるのは、中国の今の勢いを表しているような気がします。



"Chinese Straddling Bus !!"

The Straddling Bus, large enough that cars drive underneath and thru them, is the focus of an amazing new project from China.

It can travel at speeds of 60kph (37.3mph) while carrying more than 1,200 passengers!
And is much more economical than building more subways and is also predicted to save CO2.

I like this kind of innovative ideas!!

  2. “Not crowded” is the best! I envy you.
    I’m not sure whether if this is just a prototype cause the YouTube movie introducing this bus is in Chinese:)

    But China has an edge and seems they will do anything!
