Large population of China over the years has led to fascinating progress in the public transport, so the new experimental bus designed by the company “Transit Explore Bus”seems finally will be using in using public transport.
The bus which is called “Transit Elevated Bus” (TEB) is built with a huge gap right below the part of passengers. This part is high enough to be able for the cars to drive under the bus. While the cars drive under the bus, they have no contact with him and do not doing damage in traffic, actually has normal traffic.
This is an effective way to solve the traffic jams because this type of bus can carry hundreds of passengers without breaking the flow of cars underneath. The prototype of this experimental bus of China successfully completed its first test drive on Tuesday (2 August 2016) in the city of Qinhuangdao in Hebei Province.
The bus is about 22 meters long, 7.8 meters wide and 4.8 meters high. It can store up to 300 passengers, and under the bus can to spend more cars that are less than 2 meters.
Although in the testing were simulated realistic traffic situations and the bus drove slowly on demo track long only 300 meters, the engineers say that this is proof that this bus works, what actually was the purpose of this testing. The chief engineer said that they plan to make this bus commercially available for one to one and a half year.
