The project of the Chinese portal of the bus turned out to be a fraud Source:

Remember the Chinese gantry bus TEB-1 and built a 300-metre test track, which was full of headlines of news ? As it turned out, we rejoiced too early for Chinese neighbors. Shortly thereafter, around the project has had "financial problems" and strip other suspicious "failures" that produced a number of very uncomfortable questions for the organizers. And now the Chinese government does believe that the project – not that other, as ordinary fraud. And in very large sizes. On this fact started checking.

The official representatives of the police in Beijing have announced the beginning of the investigation into illegal fundraising for the project Elevated Transit Bus (or TEB). In a fraud suspect more than 30 people associated with capitalbridge platform Huaying Kailai, is engaged in raising funds individual investors for the development of this bus. Police are currently trying to seize illegally derived funds.

According to the newspaper Southern Metropolis Daily, 72 private investor filed a lawsuit against the company that by October 2016, i.e. two months after the public demonstration of TEB-1 in the city of Qinhuangdao was able to attract 9.1 billion yuan (1.3 billion dollars).

Suspicions of fraud began to appear towards the end of last year. Autek design company, engaged in the development of the bus, still not received the promised fee. According to the contract, test track after the demonstration until August 31 it was necessary to disassemble, to release the roadway, next to which it was installed. But this, of course, no one did, and paved the road for the bus TEB-1 all this time was virtually deserted. Last week the government ran out of patience, and it ordered the immediate dismantling of the track. The prototype portal of the bus, in turn, was removed to one of the local parks.

It Seems that the dream of an unusual double-Decker bus that would be able to solve the problem of urban traffic, not destined to come true.
