NaturBus: the bus powered by horses on a treadmill. Really.


Ever heard that old statistic about how it was faster to get across London in the days of horse-drawn carts than it is nowadays? It’s enough to make you want to saddle up and gallop down Oxford Street with gay abandon.

However, it seems horses may still have a role to play in urban transport. Unfortunately for them, it involves running on a treadmill inside a bus, providing the power to make it move. It’s the work of Dubai-based company Fleethorse (or it’s an elaborate spoof, of course).
