China's giant "transit elevated bus" just went real

China's Transit Explore Bus (TEB) has launched the pilot project of its road-straddling ‘Transit Elevated Bus’ in Qinhuangdao this week. After revealing the ambitious ‘Land Airbus’ concept as a scale model back in May, TEB has produced a full-scale prototype which has begun its pilot run in the coastal Chinese city about 300 kilometres east of Beijing. The massive high-riding bus is powered by battery packs that are charged by electric stations installed along the vehicle’s route.

Plane vs car: What's the best way to travel in Australia?

Stranded Australian travellers have forked out as much as $2100 for taxi and limousine rides from Canberra to Melbourne as ash clouds from the Chilean volcano continue to disrupt domestic flights. Aerial Capital Group Pty. operations manager, Shane Stephens, told Bloomberg he has sent five cars to Melbourne over the past couple of days. The fares were negotiated between the passengers and drivers, with the highest rate settled at $2100.

Speed cameras torched across Sydney

It appears as though a few disgruntled motorists are serving their own kind of vigilanty justice in North Sydney by torching yet another speed camera earlier today. The city-bound fixed speed camera halfway up Spit Hill was deliberately set alight at around 2am this morning, wiping out one of the city's most notorious revenue-raising cameras.
