World’s Longest Bus Debuts in Dresden
The idea behind the bus is that it can transport large numbers of people within cities, but it is cheaper to operate than a train. In that sense, it combines the capacity of trains with the mobility of buses. It can offer cities another option when it comes to giving commuters an alternative way of getting around. Another advantage is that bus drivers will not need to learn a new way to operate the vehicle. A computer is in charge of making sure that the last two sections of the bus properly follow the first section. Once all the safety tests that need to be run are completed, these buses might start popping up in other places as well.
