I doubt we would ever get that we'd have more accidents with that due to New yorkers who cant drive
I don't really think it would be because of that. Some depots may not be able to maintain/store the bus because its so long. Anyway, it must be a real headache driving that thing.
Try taking that thing around any tight corner in manhattan, wouldn't be easy. The driver would probably think:"Oh crap, a corner" then turns reluctantly"oh,oh,oh thank god I made it" While the last section is still turning then hears something"CRAP! What the hell happen?!" Somebody comes knocking on the bus and tells the driver that he took out a whole traffic light"S*it"
After coming back from a vacation that includes a stopover in Zurich, Switzerland, I found it absolutely amazing how far behind NYC is from Europe technologically. I would be willing to bet that something like this, let alone a bi-articulated bus in general, will not end up here for a long time.The article states how the rear section of the bus steers itself to avoid that issue.
Even more surprising, the AutoTram can be driven by any bus driver; no special license is required. The bus got the green light because of a special train-like steering algorithm that ensures the two rear sections, which rest on four guided axles, perfectly follow the cab.
