The 'Straddling Bus' looks like a subway or light-rail train bestriding the road. It is 4-4.5 m high with two levels: passengers board on the upper level while other vehicles lower than 2 m can go through underneath.
It's powered by electricity and solar energy and reaches 60 km/h carrying as many as 1400 passengers at a time without blocking other vehicles' way. The cost to build a bus and a 40km track is only about 10% of building an equivalent subway. It is said that the bus can reduce traffic jams by as much as 30%.
