This Sunday, the Transit Elavated Bus (TEB) rolled off the production line in a factory in Changzhou city, China’s east Jiangsu Province.
The TEB is a purely homegrown invention of a Chinese company, with its passenger compartment sitting above other vehicles on the road below, allowing cars to pass underneath. The TEB is designed to increase the utilization of road space. Each TEB is electric powered, replacing 40 conventional buses. It is predicted to be able to reduce urban traffic congestion by 35%.
“With a carrying capacity of 1,200 people at a time, the TEB has the same functions as the subway while its cost of construction is less than one fifth of the subway. Its construction can be finished in one year,” said Bai Zhiming, the engineer in charge of the TEB project.
Trial operations of such a bus will start in Qinhuangdao City, north China’s Hebei Province, in late July.
