Could be more dangerous and will need special services quite often. Will be a good option, If it is a success. How will they make sharp turns?

Not practical. Why not just have a train. Trains can travel 270 - 400kmh. Could you imagine traveling at 270kmh + in a bus? Much faster and safer and you will never have a blowout at those speeds. It can also carry many more than 23 people. Use the bus at the other end to take people to their final destination. Also will be electric so more environment friendly.
If they are using formula one technology do they have a team of people to change the tires after every trip?
Why the obsession with using roads - too dangerous and impractical.

Would be a great boon for commuters and promote worklife balance. When is this envisaged?
