China Actually Built This!!

For years China’s been toying with the idea of building a massive bus that straddles multiple lanes of cars to move commuters without creating a traffic mess. To date, it’s only existed as fancy computer renders and animations. But as of yesterday, the real life version started testing in Qinhuangdao, China.
The first working version of the straddling bus isn’t quite ready to handle the mean streets of Qinhuangdao yet. For testing purposes, the bus is limited to a 300 meter long track, with limited turns and traffic challenges. But it’s the first step towards something like this actually going into full service one day.
