China’s Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) was nothing but a model back in May
And this is what it looks like just three months later!
Transit Elevated Bus (TEB-1) is a guided bus that will run along a fixed route. Its passenger compartment will take the width of two traffic lanes. Its overall height is 4 to 4.5 m (13 ft 1 in to 14 ft 9 in). Vehicles lower than 2 m (6 ft 7 in) high will be able to pass underneath the bus, reducing the number of traffic jams caused by ordinary buses loading and unloading at bus stops. It can travel at up to 60 km/h (37.2 mph). The inaugural test of the bus was carried out on a 300 meter track in the city of Qinhuangdao, Hebei in August 2016.
