The virtual image of a bus to run in the year 2028 was unveiled by New York-based think tank Terreform One as part of the “Airship Bus Project.”

In the photo, the bus looks like a jellyfish, with seats for passengers at the end of each of its legs.

The bus, running slowly at 25 kilometers per hour, is to be equipped with low seats that allow passengers to hop on and off at any time. The eco-friendly vehicle would also purify a city’s air.

Industry watchers hinted that the bus would likely operate by 2028.
