Dubai Superbus

Just come across this video of a new proposed futuristic 'Superbus' service to operate, at speeds of up to 250kmh, between the great UAE cities of Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Looks great, will it happen?

I guess the draw backs I can see, from this short film, is the time taken to pick up passengers (who call up the bus to collect them from their current locations) on the busy roads of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. An hour waiting for the bus to pick up another 5 passengers from different locations in either city would negate the time made up on the 250kmh superbus sections.

Looks great though!
