I got a chance to travel in a Raleigh Rickshaw this weekend. It was awesome. My driver was Matt. He plays hockey, works at Whole Foods, and is getting ready to bike to New Orleans. He really liked his second job and said he does it three or four times a week.
Why take a taxi that burns fossil fuels when you can take a rickshaw that burns pasta and tofu? They have a dispatcher, so I call them to come get me at my apartment and take me downtown. I love it.
