The bus uses the existing road network as it is elevated and without the need to impede traffic every time it accepts passengers. The TEB initially started life as nothing but a conception – a solution for China’s growing congestion crisis.

The bus has an all-electric system and carries nearly 300 passengers with 40mph. It creates an impact on car drivers. It might appear like a normal tunnel from under, but you should remember that the tunnel is moving and quite fast.
