Buses, with their frequent stops and penchant for slow speeds, might get some people around, but they cause traffic problems for all the other drivers on the road. As shown off at the 19th International High-Tech Expo in Beijing this past weekend, there may be a solution coming to China—the straddling bus. The bus, which would carry up to 1,400 passengers, allows cars to pass underneath it. Not only would it reduce traffic issues, it would help with serious carbon emission problems. Transit Explore Bus is currently building a life-size model of the clever bus that allows cars under 7 feet to pass underneath, so actually seeing these on the road is still a ways off.
