The 3D Express Coach (straddling bus, straddle bus, land airbus or tunnel bus) is a proposed new bus concept designed by Shenzhen Hashi Future Parking Equipment Company. It was unveiled at the 13th Beijing International High-tech Expo in May 2010. A trial was scheduled to begin in Beijing’s Mentougou District by late 2010, however the project was not given authorisation by the district authorities – the technology was considered to be too immature, and further trials will not be put out unless a concept is proven to actually work.
The city of Manaus, Brazil, has also evaluated the option of installing a straddle bus in its city streets.
