Dear King County Council and Sound Transit Board members :
Please consider this! China will test its first , 'flying' bus by the end of this year. It is intended to reduce traffic jams in heay used roads and highways. HERE ARE SOME OF ITS FEATURES:
- Each 'bus' is 4.5 meteres high. Runs at 60 Km/Hr. Transports 1,200 to 1,400 passengers.
- COST for 1 'bus' and 40 Km of rail = € 56 million euros, or 10% of a similar Metro.
WHY ARE WE FOCUSED ONLY ON OLD TECHNOLOGY AND CAN'T DO THIS?????
