Transit elevated bus hits – or rather misses – the road in China

03 August 2016

 

The transit elevated bus TEB-1 is on road test in Qinhuangdao, north China's Hebei Province, Aug. 2, 2016. China's home-made transit elevated bus, TEB-1, conducted a road test running Tuesday. The 22-meter-long, 7.8-meter-wide and 4.8-meter-high TEB-1 can carry up to 300 passengers. The passenger compartment of this futuristic public bus rises far above other vehicles on the road, allowing cars to pass underneath, says China’s Xinhua news agency. The test in Qinhuangdao City, evaluated the braking system, drag and power consumption, according to tebtech, a company that helped build the TEB.

The TEB is designed to help ease traffic congestion. The passenger compartment rises far above other vehicles on the road, allowing cars to pass underneath. The compartment is 22 meters long, 7.8 meters wide and can carry 300 passengers.

The TEB has already attracted interest from governments in Brazil, France, India and Indonesia.
