The idea is to make use of the space between regular-size cars and bridges, thus saving construction costs as well as minimizing congestion impact by allowing cars to drive underneath these jumbo buses.

It'll probably be like a tram or metro where once it gets to the end of the track the driver switches ends.

I've read that China is going for bi-artics like those in Switzerland - but will also build double decker bi-artics with a capacity of up to 200 punters!
