China's Elevated Bus Launched

The Chinese TEB Elevated large Straddling  Bus idea which let cars drive under it came out six years ago. The bus which  launched its service this week in China is designed to handle 300 passengers, and it comes in at 22 meters long, 7.8 meters wide (covering two lanes) plus 4.8 meters tall. The TEB runs on 16 Tires and can attain a speed of 50km/h.

The invention of the Transit Elevated Bus is considered as a revolution for the environment-friendly public transportation and is a breakthrough of the advanced manufacturing technologies.

Lower cost and shorter construction period

The average fuel consumption of each bus is 21.6t per year, and the estimated carbon emission is 66t. One TEB has the capacity of 40 buese, but with much lower emission - reduce 864t of fuel consumption and 2640t of carbon emission

No more traffic jams

TEB occupies two lanes and consists of two layers. The upper layer will be utilized for carrying passengers and the lower layer is hollowed. Vehicles under 2 meters can go underneath, whether TEB is moving or stopped. The speed of TEB could reach to 60 km/h, and the average speed is 40 km/h. A TEB could carry 1200-1400 passengers.

Powered by electricity

Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) is a low carbon urban transportation technology. It is completely powered by municipal electricity and solar energy system. In terms of electricity, the setting is called relay direct current electrification.

With that height, the only vehicles that can overtake the TEB are small cars.
