Small streets call for small modes of transportation. 🙂
Where I come from, the more popular mode of public transportation are these “pedicabs” (others refer to them as “pedibox” just because) and they are likened to “taxicabs”, because they bring you to wherever you want in the city, for the going price of 8 pesos per trip (or a little bit more if you want to go someplace farther).
They are convenient, breezy, and fairly cheap mode of transportation, in a city that has 1-2 taxis in service. 🙂
