Moscow is now home to a fleet of electric-assist tricycles that operates as an eco-friendly taxi service.

Велотакси (pronounced ‘Velotaxi’) gives tourists a lift around the Russian capital in cycle rickshaws, which have managed to stay in vogue in a few cities since their introduction in the 1880s.

The fleet has been in operation in Moscow for over a year and business is brisk.
