Rome's New Ecotaxi Fleet
I just spotted this sweet fleet of pedal-powered Ecotaxis on my way through the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome. Motorized transport is something Rome could definitely use less of, and it looks like the Ecotaxi enterprise is boldly exploring alternatives to the motorino as a medieval street-smart mode of transport. So popular in other tourist destinations, these kinds of bike taxis provide handy transportation for worn-out tourists tempted to hire a regular pollution-spewing taxi car. In addition to their eco-charm, these spiffy biciclette will be operated by participants in a work rehabilitation program.
