BEIJING: China Plans Huge Buses Which Passenger Cars Can Drive Under

As part of a plan to relieve street congestion, China is planning to build huge articulated buses which passengers cars can drive under. Via Engadget:
Despite the silly picture and the eccentric "3D Express Coach" branding, this cunning project by Shenzhen Huashi Future Car-Parking Equipment actually makes sense. The idea is to make use of the space between regular-size cars and bridges, thus saving construction costs as well as minimizing congestion impact by allowing cars to drive underneath these jumbo buses. Fancy hitching a ride? You better start planning your move to Beijing's Mentougou district, which is where Huashi will commence building its first 186km of track at year's end.
Amazing, if it works.
