The rickshaw, or tricycle/pedicab, is a pretty common transportation option all over the world, and the pedal-powered or battery-powered ones might just be the most eco-friendly way to get around a city. Naturally, rides on tricycles don’t come for free–except in Dublin, where Ecocabs are gaining popularity.
Ecocabs provide a shuttle service around the Dublin city center on a daily basis from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., April 1 to December 31st. The three-seater cabs are mostly pedal-powered, but can also be helped along with battery power when necessary. Rides on the Ecocabs are free, thanks to the sponsors who advertise on the cabs themselves!
