After initially unveiling its plans for the future of public transportation in 2010, China has finally put its plan into action by mobilizing the very first elevated bus! The straddling bus, called the TEB-1, took its inaugural cruise through Qinhuangdao on August 2nd, and showed off the bus’ ability to ease traffic congestion safely. The bus itself straddles over traffic, driving on rails situated on both sides of the road, and can carry up to 300 passengers at once. The bus will continue carrying excited travelers, with plans to expand the service to other cities throughout China. Check out the video below to see the bus’ inaugural launch!
