  • China’s Straddling bus Raises Doubts among Automakers and Authorities

The Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) by China raise concerns on many grounds.

China’s Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) created a huge hype last week when it was inaugurated for the first time in the country. The bus completed its first test round successfully and since then many companies are looking forward to work on this project in order make it a full product. However a few questions have been raised on the nature and compatibility of this bus.

Some of the resources suggest that this is a big scam by TEBtech. This kind of project might not see any real light of productivity.  It is also being said by As China’s Global Times that this project might give rise to different money making scandals as this kind of Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) concept looks nothing but a scam.

The doubts about the viability of design are pretty true to a lot of extent. If we look at the prototype that was introduced earlier, it can be seen that the TEBtech’s prototype had rubber tires which were seen being driven crudely on the roads on the day of its launch. However in the original proposal it was proposed that it will be driven on special rails, according to Car News China.

There is another speculation that is being heard these days related to Transit Elevated Bus (TEB). It is said that this prototype might simply be a refurbished portal crane that can be seen on the major ports. Thus the company might have saved money on building a true TEB too.

This project have been in the news from the past ten years. The 2nd August’s test run showed the TEB for the first time moving on roads, according to MotorAuthority.

However it only went as far as 300 meters which is not a great number. The project has earned a lot of interest from India, France and Brazil. However we still do not know if it will be viable one or not.
