Abu Dhabi Weather

Monday, February 28, 2011


Creators of the new Superbus hope to aid the UAE in its struggle to be environmentally friendly and spend ridiculous amounts of money doing it. This new form of public transport will take commuters from Abu Dhabi to Dubai in 30 minutes, traveling at speeds of 250 kph (150 mph). This vehicle will travel on usual city streets to pick up passengers and once on the highway, will travel on specially constructed "Superbus only" roads. If the project is approved, this will be the Concorde of buses. The main challenges will be finding trustworthy drivers to drive the bus at these speeds and keeping guys in Ferraris from treating the special roads as their own private speedways.


  1. Wouldn't high speed trains be safer?

  2. I would imagine that would be the case, but the keyword here is "luxury." If you click on the link, there is a video that suggests that the Superbus would allow people to summon it to certain parts of town. I'm not sure how that works, but it would seem to add significantly to the 30 minute commute time if the driver has to drive all over town picking people up.
