Conceptual transportation: Straddling Bus

via The DailyWhat:


Life-Altering Public Transportation Vehicle of the Day: First introduced in May at the 13th Beijing International High-tech Expo, the Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Co.’s Straddling Bus (AKA 3D Fast Bus) is designed with traffic efficiency in mind: Capable of transporting up to 1400 passengers in its upper level, while the lower level is left hollow, allowing cars and other vehicles under 2m to pass through safely.

In addition, construction costs are a fraction when compared to an equivalent subway system, with the added bonus of looking a million times cooler.
