What do you think of China's idea for buses?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu Aug 12, 2010 12:21 am

Instead of spending millions to widen roads or build subways, a
Chinese company is developing a "three-dimensional fast coach", a raised
bus that will allow cars to travel underneath unimpeded, while hundreds
of passengers board and disembark overhead, without blocking traffic.
The model looks like a subway or light-rail train bestriding the
road. It is 4.5 meters high (17.5 feet) with two levels: passengers
board on the upper level, while other cars can keep going, traveling
through the bus underneath.
Powered by electricity and solar energy, the bus can travel along at
37 mph (60 km/h) while carrying 1200-1400 passengers at a time, without
blocking other vehicles' way.
It costs a fraction to build compared to alternatives and needs just
10% of the space of an equivalent subway. It is said that the bus can
reduce traffic jams by 20-30%.

It sounds dangerous to me...
I'm not anxious to see it implemented here.

I wasn't too sure I liked the idea either! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Sounds like an interesting idea, but I would assume it could only be implemented in very large cities with very long, very straight roads.
