As of now, the buses are running about a 14-mile, inner city route in Gumi, but officials hope to add more cities in the coming years. That shouldn't be too hard to accomplish, especially since the power strips are only activated when a driver drives over them. Plus, the strips don't need to cover the entire road, just segments along the route.

If the project is a success, Gumi City plans to roll out 10 more buses by 2015, along as pilot programs in other Korean cities. Besides introducing 3 OLEV buses to McAllen, Texas, KAIST is working on projects with Boston's Logan Airport, Park City, Utah and the Kuala Lumpur Airport in Malaysia.
So what are you waiting for, hop on board and take an OLEV for a test drive with this video.
