A Futuristic Bus Could Help Chinese Cities Curb Air Pollution And Traffic
The forward-thinking design could become a reality and help ease congestion in China
A scientific study published recently in the The New York Times estimated that outdoor air pollution contributes to the death of 1.6 million people a year in China. With car ownership soaring in cities across China, air pollution and increased congestion on roads in major Chinese cities is inevitable. In an effort to solve the issue engineers and designers are trying to find relief in technology. At the end of May, the 19th International High-Tech Expo in Beijing featured a model “straddling bus” that has the ability to pass over car traffic and the capacity to hold 1,000-plus passengers.
