This Straddling bus saves more than 800 tonnes of fuel and the emission of the carbon is cut down to 2500 tonnes. The road space is saved a lot with the straddling bus concept.

Some China cities already showed interest on the straddling bus. A vehicle is under production at one of the East China city, to test the feasibility of the design. It takes one year to build one straddling bus. The first trail is planned to implement at North china’s Ching-hong city at the end of July or in August.
