Things move incredibly fast with the Chinese Straddling bus. In May a model of a straddling bus was presented at a trade-show in Beijing and now it is already in real life road testing.

The TEB-1 straddling bus is driving around in a Chinese city. It the took the makers from a scaled model to a full-sized tunnel bus only 3 months. The Transit Explore Bus (TEB) is 22 meters long, 7.8m wide and 4.8m high. It will have space for 300 passengers.

This first straddling bus is a compact version the company has been building for a first road test, which is now underway as photos of China Xinhua News impressively show. The Transit Elevated Bus cruises around Qinhuangdao in North China's Hebei region.

Early July we reported that the body work of the land-air bust was finished. Four weeks later it is ready to transport the first passengers above the car traffic. It is an incredible site seeing real cars drive under the moving bus. The clearance is though only high enough for cars and not trucks. This version of the TEB only works on streets where trucks are prohibited.

The inside of the TEB-1 are quite roomy as the bus is two lanes wide. Below are more photos fo the Traffic straddling bus and a 2 minute video showing the bus driving around and passengers getting on board at elevated bus stations.
