Recently, the Chinese launched the world’s first Transit Elevated Bus (TEB). The bus started as a concept on a drawing board, the plans were presented in Beijing at a high-tech expo, and later they finally came to the completion of the TEB model.
The bus is an eco-friendly vehicle that is powered by electricity. It has a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour and it can accommodate 300 passengers. The first TEB model is 72 feet long and 25 feet wide, and is now in its testing phase in Qinhuangdao City.
The design is quite unusual, as the bus occupies mainly the whole width of the road. If you are thinking that the design will cause issues, well you are wrong about it. The TEB is perfect for picking and dropping passengers at a bus stop. The vehicles that are following the TEB will not be slowed down, because they can pass right under the bus.
If this new Massive Transport System will be a success, the TEB’s manufacturer is aiming for larger TEBs. The aim is to accommodate more than 300 passengers and to innovate its current design into a worthy futuristic Massive Transport System.
