China recently unveiled the “world’s largest” bus. The Chinese manufacturer, named Zhejiang Young Man Vehicle Group, introduced the 25-meter-long “Superliner” at Shanghai’s Busworld Asia 2007 convention. The bus has five doors, 40 seats, carries up to 300 passengers and, according to a driver, “is flexible when cornering.”

I wonder how environmentally sound it is in terms of its emissions…

No idea but damn sure that it will be heavy on environment. Chinese don’t care for environment anyway!

I’m certain this bus will be a positive addition to china’s attempts at Bus Rapid Transit. There are smaller bi articulated buses in operation elsewhere and their required turning radius is not much more than that of a normal bus, because of the two joints. could easily see some of those moving passengers here in Trinidad along our Priority Bus Route.

This bus will only be used in Airports. There is no way that this alien can make a turn, or “U turn” :))

This will just add to the pollution which causes GLOBAL WARMING… do they think about that??

It should actually have a positive environmental effect relative to a standard bus. It might emit a bit more CO2 per mile than a standard bus, but it carries many more people. Therefore, it will emit less CO2 per passenger mile than a standard bus, and less CO2 in total compared to the several standard buses it would take to carry the same number of people.

And Kayla: are you really suggesting that a rapily-industrialisng nation investing in new technology to move people about quickly and efficiently, reducing congestion and pollution, isn’t a positive use of money. Sheesh, the Luddism of some people knows no ends.

Yes I’m sure it’ll be lighter then 10 30-passenger buses or 150 2 passenger smaller cars, stop your mindless China-bashing.

Big bus, but not really the largest. Brazil and Colombia have even larger buses. google or youtube Caio Topbus or http://www.caio.com.br

Hi!
In Curitiba, Brazil, was introduced yesterday the brand new biggest bus in the world with 28 meters. And to reduce emissions it’s moved by 100% biodiesel (no petroleum). The buses run in a system of exclusive roads called BRT. http://www.curitiba.pr.gov.br/noticias/luciano-ducci-lanca-maior-onibus-do-mundo-no-eixo-lesteoeste/24536

Heard the chinese engineers are working on something even bigger! Initial reports says it’s a bi-articulated double decker carrying 460 passengers! Now that’s a huge monster.
