Chinese Bus Allows Cars to Pass Underneath



China is trying to find a way to increase urban transportation without slowing down traffic. One proposal is an elevated bus that allows cars to pass beneath it:

Basically, it's a huge bus that operates like a train on wheels, and is so tall that cars can drive right under it. Each bus is about two street lanes wide and 18 feet tall, according to Song Youzhou, the chairman of Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Company, which is building these enormous buses.

I am not sure how safe this is. If someone is texting and driving and swerves to either direction they would cause damage to the train.. Causing everything to stop way longer than what it would normally do stopping to pick people up. it would be really cool if as the bus is slowing down to pick up a customer, to then raise to allow a car to get underneath

This is not a bus it is a vehicle that runs on tracks, presumably a train, and as a train it starts to make a lot more sense. It would be a much, much more efficient solution than building an overhead rail line. The big problem seems like it would be that any car that gets in a fender bender with this thing is likely to be completely annihilated.
