The taxis are made available for free thanks to advertisements printed on the vehicles. Each taxi can hold a driver and two passengers, and has a tablet on board to provide both utility to the passenger and further advertising opportunities. The vehicles use electric pedaling and regenerative braking, which converts braking energy into power that passengers can use to charge their cellphones.
