What will the bus of the future look like?
Pretty cool huh? Well compared to what we see on the streets now, its a marked improvement, but that is nothing compared to what people in the past hoped they would look like. In the 1950s they thought it would be as big as a Star Wars’ AT-AT with slick lines and a Jetson’s style cockpit. Oh and it will destroy anything in its path!!
What’s super cool is that the inside of this vehicle looks like a dining club of some sort. I would love a more open seating style on my Greyhound. Have a couple of drinks, meet some new people. Instead we are still crammed into aluminum tubes – face forward – back straight. I love these retro visions of a future that will never happen.
