This rapid transit alternative has been proposed by a firm in China and I thought it might just work in Vancouver. With the ongoing debate for rapid transit on Broadway to UBC, could this be a viable solution? It would avoid traffic by going right over it and would have elevated stations at the street. Very futuristic and possible a cost effective solution. In case you’re wondering it can handle turns. Here is a video demonstrating the straddle bus’ ability.
