BicyTaxi
In June 2006, Bicytaxis appeared on the streets of New York. They're bicycle-taxis.

Bicytaxi: Advertising in Motion
Bicytaxi is unique in that it successfully fuses environmentally-friendly transportation with increased awareness of a top advertising medium.

Because Bicytaxis shuttles passengers to their destination year round, running scheduled routes in New York City as a Taxi, or operates at events such as corporate celebrations, sports, fairs or congresses your advertising will always be prominent and attract attention.

Advertising & Events
Combining innovative and eco-friendly transportation with its function as a prime advertising medium, Bicytaxi adopts unusual, flashy and emotional advertising that has proven successful with corporate giants such as Nike, Sony, T-Mobile, MasterCard, C&A, Vodafone, Diesel and Esprit.

Bicytaxi is:

An advertising medium that generates increased awareness and exceptional recall value.
An innovative medium for successful brand communication.
A flexible, user-friendly mobility concept that excels as an addition to urban transport infrastructure.
A shuttle vehicle that has proven extremely valuable at events of any size as sports, fairs, trade shows or big exhibitions in many places around the world.
A mobile, flamboyant platform for special activities and events such as samplings, incentives, ice-cream sales or info services.

BicyTaxis have fast become a common sight in many environmentally-conscious cities worldwide. Because our cities are becoming increasingly crowded and busy, we must consider new and innovative concepts in order to maintain, or even improve, the quality of life for residents. Bicytaxi is the ideal solution to these problems as it ecologically and efficiently reduces urban emissions and therefore pollution. Urban transportation is enhanced through a flexible and reliable mobility system. Bicytaxis, however, are not only excellent means of transport for urban areas but also excel at events. They may further be used as a shuttle service and are, of course, one of the best and most effective advertising media in the outdoor sector.

It's Not a Bike, It's Not a Taxi - It's a BicyTaxi
Move over regular ol' pedicabs - the BicyTaxi has come to town. It seems like BicyTaxi hopes to make money off advertising on the vehicle, but the fare is supposed to be $1 per block and a $10 minimum. What's interesting is that BicyTaxi also urges people to order the vehicles in advance. We're not sure if these BicyTaxis will need to be regulated, but if they become for-public vehicles, we imagine they will.
