Urban Fold

The Biggest Bus In The World

With three sections, five doors, and a 300-person capacity, the "world's largest bus" has been unveiled in Shanghai. The new buses will be used for a planned bus rapid transit line in the city.

The "world's largest" bus, a China-made coach with a capacity of 300 passengers, has been unveiled in Shanghai and will be used for rapid transit in Beijing and Hangzhou, the Youth Daily reported today.

The newspaper said the Zhejiang Young Man Vehicle Group launched the 25-meter-long super bus, about the size of a metro car, at the opening of Busworld Asia 2007, a leading domestic bus and coach show in Shanghai. It is 13 meters longer than an ordinary bus and is the world's largest bus, according to the manufacturer.

It takes about 35 steps to walk from the front to the back. It has five doors, 40 seats and can carry 300 people. The top speed is around 80 kilometers per hour.
