Ever wonder which country holds the golden keys to the future of public transportation? The country with the world’s largest population! Chinese rail company CRRC Zhuzhou created a special ART (Autonomous Rail Rapid Transit) train which doesn’t depend on rails, but rather rubber tires. The 30-meter train can run up to 70 km/h and carry up to 500 passengers.

Sensors allow it to scan surrounding areas and even plan routes based on data it collects as it goes. The train also operates on electricity—ringing true to China’s goals to become more environmentally-conscious.

As the world’s population grows, pollution worsens and subways become more difficult to build, this is an alternative form of public transportation that does not require too much time or money.
