As the price of fuel goes up higher than ever before, why not rely on pedal power the next time you’re in a metropolis? Paris is offering a tiny fleet of hybrid pedal rickshaws which are similar to those in Rome and Valencia. The rickshaw service is known as Urban Cab, and will get you to your destination without polluting the environment, and is definitely more comfortable than fighting for space in a tightly crowded bus. The Urban Cab will operate on a route that passes along the Bastille, the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Saint-Michel and Notre-Dame. This looks like a high class rickshaw of the ones used in other third world countries, and is more advanced as it features a battery and an electric motor that assists on steep inclines.
