Sharing BUS, an upgraded version of Sharing Van – China's first unmanned minibus to offer 24-hour transport services – was recently officially launched in the Wuhan Economic & Technological Development Zone (WHDZ).

The cool silver body of the bus is currently decorated with art of Chunshun – WHDZ's iconic landmark. The art will be changed on major festivals and other occasions.

The interior of the Sharing BUS is more spacious than the Sharing VAN, with the number of passenger seats rising from six to nine. In addition, the bus is superior in terms of detecting and avoiding humans and other obstacles.

The bus is on a par with conventional electric vehicles in terms of stability and safety, and now operates at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour, which will be raised to 30 km per hour after trial operations.

The Sharing-bus will travel from Chunsun to Xiaojunshan subway station this month and will eventually serve the entire central living district of Junshan New City.
