For years, China has been struggling with its traffic congestion. To date, the concepts to tackle these issues existed only as computer renders and animations. But today, China has actually built a real-life elevated bus.
The first working version of the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) isn't quite ready for the Chinese traffic yet. For testing purposes, the bus will be doing its trial runs on a 300-meter long test track, with limited turns and traffic .
This is the first step towards something like this going into full service one day. If the bus tackles the challenges, it could one day carry up to 1,200 passengers at 40 miles per hour.
Completing this project is going to be very hard, for sure. But once the network of TEBs are fully functional, it could help ease the traffic congestion in the country drastically.
