The incredible straddling bus is real. From model to a full-sized tunnel bus, it took a Chinese company only two months. Update: Now with video.
In May a model of a straddling bus was presented at a trade-show in Beijing. The bus straddles two lanes, allowing cars to drive under the bus. The land-air bus runs on special tracks placed along the sides of the road. The video of the model-sized straddling bus looked already like a scene out of a sci-fi movie.

Now the company building the Straddling Bus has celebrated the completion of the bodywork. The straddling bus went from model to full sized reality in 2 months. The so called Transit Explore Bus (TEB) is 22 meters long, 7.8m wide and 4.8m high. It will have space for 55 passengers. This first straddling bus is a compact version the company is building for a first road test still this summer in a Chinese city.
The designers of the straddling bus say that they can be built to carry up to 1,400 passengers.
