Ok so, I came across an article a while back that featured this amazing idea being developed in China called the “Straddling Bus”. Think of a hybrid between a monorail and bus. I live on the Big Island of Hawaii, but on the island of Oahu (1/4th the size of my island, yet over quadrupled in population) the traffic is HORRIBLE. It takes like an hour to drive less than a mile sometimes. There’s this gigantic dispute about wether to build a rail system on Oahu, but I figured, why build a rail when THIS would be perfect.
Then I noticed that this idea came out in 2010, it’s 2013. I do see the traffic complications that come with it, but what on Earth is taking them so long?
