Hate waiting in traffic?

With a population of over 22 million people, it comes to no surprise Beijing experiences traffic congestion.

The citys latest solution for handling traffic congestion is something that looks straight from a sci-fi novel. 
The "straddle bus" will be able to transport approximately 1200 passangers over traffic.  So while traffic is moving or NOT the megabus will swiftly move overhead.

It's expected that the bus will reduce traffic by 30 percent and reduce carbon emissions at a low cost.

You can view a video presentation of Beijing's straddle bus below.
