and nnn..OOO...WWWW... THE PEDAL BUS !!! * USA - Eco Buses: Busycle puts an end to horsepower with pedal-power

Palo Alto,CAL,USA -Ecofriend, by Anupam -Nov 7 2008: -- Commuting from one place to another in a bus could not have been more ecofriendly than traveling by this amazing “Busycle”, which is nothing but a Bus plus a Cycle. The vehicle can carry 15 persons and gets all its power from the legs of the passengers onboard... Although the Busycle still has a driver, all passengers are required to pedal hard. This not only gives the passengers a flatter tummy but even a flatter carbon footprint. Since the Busycle just makes use of human power, it is a zero emission vehicle. We don’t expect the vehicle to take you from one place to another at an express pace, but you would surely be reaching your destination drenched in sweat and having a lower carbon footprint than many of your colleagues coming in their Ferraris. Adding to its eco creds, the Busycle has been made from all kinds of recycled materials ranging from office chairs to steel bed frames...The Dark Side: Apart from the time factor, this bus won’t be able to move much without the presence of 15 people onboard or at least one of you should be a participant of the “Tour de France”...
