So for those of you who read my blogs, *cough Jeff, Richard, Rob, John and Frankie, I wrote about China’s new transit concept awhile back. The bus concept looked like a giant caterpillar thing and I thought it was a huge design flaw.
GUESS WHAT, the Chinese actually went and built it. The official name of this bus is called Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) and it’s an idea floating around since the 2010 Beijing Expo. Last Tuesday, the northeastern city of Qinhuangdao, in Hebei tested its first prototype. The bus can travel up to 37 mph and hold about 300 people. People will board from a special elevated platform from above. Amazing, check out some pictures and the video below!
