FUTURISTIC BUSES – HERE WE COME!

"Straddling Bus!"

The new “straddling bus”, designed by Shenzhen Huashi Future Parking Equipment Co.

REDUCES TRAFFIC CONGESTION! –much needed in such high population density cities

RUNS ON SOLAR AND MUNICIPAL ENERGY!–fuel-efficient!

COSTS LESS–1/10 of normal subway development cost

It looks so futuristic! I can start to imagine what the future of transportation is going to look like: hopefully a blend of fuel efficiency, high speed, convenience, and affordable!

    Good idea! But there still have a lot of realistic problems to be solved. Such as the different heights of the cars and buses that will drive through the straddling bus, the overpasses overhead the roads and so on.
