    An interesting idea, but how on earth does it turn? You’d have to somehow lock the front wheel of each bike from turning side to side and articulate all of the mountings so that they would adjust to just the right angle when going through a turn. This would require either very complex mechanical linkages and a lot of muscle power on the part of the driver or a lot of little electric motors, which would burn power that this machine will not have to spare. Otherwise, you’re going to have the wheels scraping sideways across the ground. Assuming, that is, that the bus is even able to turn since there is barely any weight on the front tires.
