Future Bus

The Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands is developing another bus, which is able to operate on designated tracks. Future Bus is able to operate at very high speeds of up to 250 kilometres per hour (155 mph) and could therefore be an alternative to high-speed railway lines.

This highly streamlined electric bus can also be driven at lower speeds on existing roads and bus lanes. With a length of 15 metres (49.2 ft) and a width of 2.5 metres (8.2 ft), the Superbus has similar dimensions to a conventional bus. Due to the seating arrangement without a centre aisle however, the height is just 1.7 metres (5.6 ft). The low aerodynamic drag (less than 0.2) makes the Superbus more efficient than a passenger car.

  1. This will never come to be reality

  2. There are reasons for designated bus pickup/setdown areas.Can you imagine,lets say a 1 kilometre stretch of road,ok normally you would have 1 maybe 2 points(bus stops)along the route.What happens when many passengers along this route order the bus to stop(sms,online whatever)at their front door??.This bus will never reach 250 kmh if it needs to stop every 15-20 metres or so.Is this an urban bus or inter city one,or have I missed something?.

  3. Just leaving this comment as I am very much impressed by the design of the page. The Theme is awesome and every thing placed here and there compliments the theme of the page.
    very nice… best of luck and life
    cheers

  4. I’d like to see this vehicle get over any kind of hill or just a small bump with such a ridiculous ground clearance

  5. They should make one of these that runs off a gas turbine. but at least the design is half decent – most of these futuristic eco-vehicles look like something made for little kids. the nissan pivo for example :puke:

  6. very fancy… its just like a limo..

  7. its possible to build but it needs a super smooth highways.
