Given that the current population of China, according to a 2010 census report, sits comfortably at just over 1.3 billion people, it makes sense that the world’s most populous country would seek to make inroads in regards to the country’s public transportation.
One such advancement is the unveiling of the world’s largest bus. The Youngman JNP6250G measures in at over 82 feet long, is 13 meters longer than average buses, and can carry up to 300 passengers. A fleet of Youngmans will soon begin operation in China’s Bus Rapid Transit service in Beijing and Hangzhou, two of China’s most populous urban living centers.
Even though the Youngman JNP6250G is only able to attain a top speed of 50 mph that doesn’t necessarily make it a slower alternate form of transportation. Plans are being made for the new Superliner to have its own lane in local highways.
As China continues to grow and expand, so too will its population, so it’s certainly commendable that the government is at least looking to solve its growing transportation issues.
