A bus-train hybrid vehicle just opened to the public in the city of Kaiyo, Japan, on December 25. Called a ‘dual-mode vehicle,’ or DMV, the transport has normal rubber tires that allow it to drive on roads, but it also has descending steel wheels that can connect to train tracks. The DMV, which has been in development since 2002, fits approx 20 passengers and can reach speeds between 37 and 62 mph, depending on which surface it’s traveling on.
