China is testing a futuristic bus that straddles traffic and carries over a thousand passengers

Sat Aug 13, 2016 8:54 pm

China has begun testing a futuristic-looking electric bus that straddles traffic as it drives down the street.

By straddling the traffic, the bus is able to quickly move above most vehicles, helping cut down on congestion and pollution caused by auto emissions.

Transit Explore Bus, which is the company behind the vehicle, first revealed the concept in May at the 19th China Beijing International High-Tech Expo. But on Tuesday the company showed off a full-scale prototype in Qinhuangdao, China and launched its first road test, according to a report from China Xinhua News.

Let's take a closer look at the prototype.
