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?????

Cordially,

Shawn Etchevers
