One Chinese city has come up with a partial solution to its notorious traffic problem -- but, boy, is it a weird looking thing.
The Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) is 72 feet long, 25 feet wide, is powered by electricity and carries up to 300 passengers -- and rides just a few feet over the traffic below.
The bus, unveiled in Qinhuangdao this week, looks like it's gobbling up vehicles as it rolls along its tracks embedded in the street.
Four other major Chinese cities have also signed on to buy the new buses.

That's brilliant. They should introduce those to Bolton. It'd be cool seeing those travelling down Bridgeman Street near where I live.

From Q.

By the way, I don't know why I said Bridgeman Street. That's Derby Street going into the town centre. You can see our magnificent Victorian town hall in the distance (where I am right next to right now).

It'd be jazzed up a bit if they just got rid of the mosque and the Muslims and then added some elevated buses.

No, it's like something Q would make for Bond.

Could not they just feed them birth control pills so there would be fewer people. They overran my district, the old ones come to Canada for the pension benefits.
