Wouldn't it be simpler to build an overhead electric tramway?
Oh, I forgot. Already been invented :'(

I like when people come up with such interesting ideas like this. I can imagine that such buses that don't interfere much with other traffic would help in some big crowded cities, and it doesn't look extremely expensive (well, normal buses are still cheaper I guess :) )

#5 this is way cheaper than an overhead eletric tramway, and is a pretty good idea to get rid of alot of air polution, and trafic, although i'd be pretty scared if a giant "bus" just ran over my car...

sorry but this is still useless to me.
As you can see the Truck has to overtake the "bus"(btw. i wouldn't call that a bus)
So now what do you think the "bus" does when there is a truck in front and stuck in traffic?

I guess the "bus" has to wait - back to the main problem.

If this is introduced people would stop using cars ,cuz it is not stopped by the signal or anything else ...It keeps going on & on & that saves the time :D :D

The Chinese people can come up with something better right ? 8-)

As the "bus" is moving on rails, i suppose it is actually a tram (although on high heals :)) and as such it has a risk of derailing in collision with a larger vehicle.. but more than that i'm worried about all those people driving underneath. With crash statistics high as they are, putting a mammuth vehicle on the road...makes me a bit worried... i hope it won't go into production.
But i appreciate the idea.. it's really different.

The advantage of this is that you do not need to build designated tracks so existing infrastructure can be used. It looks like a good idea. I wonder what would happen when a car or other vehicle crashes into it whether other buses can get around because they seem fixed to a route. The problem with traffic is too many cars if there were less cars and more normal buses then more people would take them because there would be a vastly improved service. It is a virtuous/vicious cycle. I think they should make central london ban cars completely except for specially licensed delivery vehicles and disabled vehicles. Or we should all be given jet packs.

Nice idea but it's never going to be built :(

That's one neat idea. brilliant, could be only Chinese idea that was not copied. but maybe I am wrong.

I'm not convinced. Nice idea, but I have a gut feeling there's got to be a better way than this.

I can think of at least a dozen reasons why this could be a nightmare.

#1 on the list is, What happens if there is a car wreck under it that stops the buss and the cars underneath catch fire? I don't see any emergency exits or ramp.

#9 as you can see in the video there are poles going over the road the bus uses stopping any traffic that is too tall or too wide from using those lanes anyway. Id imagine if implemented in a city it would be no more hazardous than a low bridge.

another useless idea. until this would be built, a new kind of automobile will run on the streets or in the air...

Basically its a train on the surface that serves as a way to sort through traffic.

????? What's the point of the Chinese subtitles if he's speaking Chinese?

I don't think they're planning on building this for themselves. I think they're planning to sell it to European countries. All the sim-people in the speaker's video illustrations are caucasians - white complexions; blond, red, brown hair.

Wow, something like this could open up a whole new realm of fail videos.

I can see someone getting sliced in half if he is in the door when that thing leaves... Or they might have a sensor or something...I don't know...because I CAN'T UNDERSTAND!

Ok, i can see a few issues with this.
Firstly it seems delicate. The first drunk idiot that slams into the side of one and bends the support beams so that the carraige cannot move, cripples the whole system. As for the escape slides, dont sit on the traffic side I guess.
Im assuming the vehicle is on a track of some sort.
It seems that there would be just as much work involved in laying this track and the thousands of sensors needed, as there would be in laying a whole tram system, not to mention the fact that you would have to close those roads to do such work.
#7 you just made that up. There is absolutly no evidence that this would be cheaper than a tram. I dont speak chineese but even if he did say it was cheaper it could only be speculative at best.
