    It's a rather interesting idea. I do hope it works well.

    dude, that's fucking GENIUS- if it can be implemented right. I wish we still had the motivation for that level of innovation here in the US. We screw ourselves over with short-sighted patent laws and over-encumbering litigation.

    Part of me is very skeptical and would rather just stick to the left lane... a 30% reduction in congestion just seems outlandish, but if it works...

    That looks both amazing and horrifying.

    Makes me wonder again what happens when it turns. I mean, you have cars under it that might not be turning, and a bus that's turning... seems... bad.

    It either reduces the congestion problem or reduces the overpopulation problem (which reduces the congestion problem). Win win!

    I'm sure engineers will be queuing up to work on it.

    I guess so. I mean, the point of having a bus would mean that it was more manoeverable than a light-rail or something, right? But if it's on tracks anyway, and cars would have to wait for it to turn before they could turn, thereby making angry drivers... it seems more cumbersome than a sky-rail, which has a similar purpose, so the only reason I can see for such an idea would be that it's less expensive. Or, they already have a sky rail that's overcrowded and they're just trying to cram in more people.

    Innovation is good, but sometimes people don't go through with ideas because they're, well, bad ideas.

    well I think you hit a good point Haph....

    precisely how many people are gonna die (on average) when one of these puppies derails? Can a large van or SUV knock it off alignment?

    and a derailment WOULD happen..... one of those questions of when, not if.

    Let's see, that bus is huge, about the size of a subway. Depending on which way it derails, it would crush a whole bunch of cars in its wake, or it might crush into a building, causing building damage and killing a bunch of people inside.

    What makes the fatalities increase would be the size of the bus, and also the fact that there are people below it in all directions, not just side to side of it. The center of gravity of it looks like it would be really high, too :/

    Also, there's the question for the picture -- how the hell do people get into that bus, anyway? The doors are so high up! They'd have to build loading platforms!
