Superbus: sporty public transport with 30+ doors


    If they shrank the wheelbase, this could very well be the latest supercar concept hitting up the auto shows. Instead, the Superbus is super-stretched for public transport purposes, providing individual doors to each of the 30-something passengers. The roofline is just 5.6-feet high, about the same as an average SUV, so there isn’t any standing room on this bus. It is capable of traveling at speeds of up to 155mph, riding on dedicated “supertracks” and getting its electric power from either batteries or fuel cells. Interestingly, it is no longer than a standard city bus, but it looks a whole lot hipper. Let’s hope the folks at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands follow through on this project. After all, they’ve received substantial government funding, as well as money from the Connexxion bus company.
