These electric buses can plug into each other to transfer battery-power

The Publictube turns a network of e-buses into a network of potential batteries that can be used to transfer power between vehicles. Each bus comes with a modular design that allows them to ‘plug into each other’ with contact points on the front and back to help transfer power. When a bus runs low on power, instead of looking for a charging source, it just plugs to another bus for a temporary recharge. This means you’re never really too far away from a charging-point, and that a network of buses can easily and efficiently deliver and distribute power among each other while operating on their routes. Besides, when the buses find themselves at the depot after a long day, they can form a chain and connect to a single power source to effectively distribute battery power to each vehicle simultaneously!
