Bus that Drives over Traffic Jams

 A Beijing company has revealed a design for a bus capable of gliding over cars. The bus is named the Transit Explore Bus or TEB. The straddling bus is supported by two legs that run along rails laid along the roadside. Those legs allow the TEB's giant frame to glide high above the gridlock at a speed of up to 60km. Equally vehicles that are less than two meters high will be able to drive freely underneath the bus even when it's stationary. Plus, the buses are able to take 1,400 people at a time. Maybe Auckland needs one of these.
