A Beijing company has unveiled a design for an elevated bus capable of gliding over the nightmarish mega-jams.

Plans for the so-called Transit Explore Bus or TEB were shown at a technology expo in the Chinese capital.

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 speeds of up to 60km per hour.

Equally, vehicles that are less than two metres high will be able to drive freely underneath the bus, even when it is stationary.

The buses are capable of transporting up to 1,400 commuters at a time.

Maybe Auckland needs one of these!
