China Says Bigger Is Better...

While some of us are downsizing,
China has it says, made a momentous step forward for public transportation by unveiling the world's longest or largest bus, capable of carrying three hundred passengers.
A fleet of these 82 foot monsters, each made up of two ribbed sections which enables it to turn as easily as a regular city bus, will make up the Bus Rapid Transit Service in Beijing and Hangzhou.
I guess the front section is 'first class' and will cost more as these passengers get to their destinations much earlier than those way down the back...

  1. So BIG is BETTER - in China it seems.

  2. I wish we had a better public transport system here. No direct bus/train to get to the airport from where I live - it is crazy! I used to live in London and moan about the public transport system there, but at least there was one and I could get to anywhere in England without using a car. V x

  3. Mmm - from one extreme to the other! It's almost a city on wheels. I can see more than one door. But I think I prefer small.
