China’s bus of the future lets cars drive under it

If you can drive in China, you can drive anywhere — imagine LA traffic, only with super aggressive drivers sharing the road with loads and loads of bicycles.  And that’s why this innovative bus of the future is freakin fantastic.  In an effort to ease traffic congestion, the Shenzhen Huashi Future Parking Equipment company is developing the “3D Express Coach,” a ginormous (20 feet wide and 15 feet high) bus that has a built-in tunnel, allowing cars and other vehicles to drive under it.  And to make it even cooler, this super bus will be powered by a combination of solar energy and electricity.

The company will start building the first 115 miles of track in Beijing at the end of this year.  Apparently, it will take $73 million and only a year to build this amazing transportation system of the future.

I can’t wait to ride this!  Definitely on my list of things to do the when I visit my bro in Beijing.

    Umm, how does this work if you are driving under it and it has to make a turn?
