I’m sure whenever you’re driving through peak hour traffic in the city and your car is just sitting there for ages, you must get pretty peeved when you see a bicycle just cruise on by in the bike lane and think, “Lucky sod”. Yet at the same time, you can’t be bothered peddling for all that time or get sweaty?
Well, there’s a brilliant solution to this: Bike Cabs! Exactly as the name suggests, it’s a taxi service on a bicycle that can get you from A to B in no time, right here in Melbourne. With all the recent acclaim Melbourne’s gotten for being both the both livable and the friendliest cities in the world, how do we not have this already? Bike Cabs will take you anywhere in the city or within the inner suburbs of Melbourne. You’d be putting all those city bike lanes to work. For those always thinking about the environment, these bike cabs produce zero carbon emissions. That’s one for the environment right there!
To make this happen, there needs to be a minimum of $25,000 raised to make this work. Naturally you’ll get a reward for your donation, and the more you donate the more you get out of it. If you’re a big company that wants to help the environment and get your brand out there at the same time, one of the higher donation tiers will be a big win for both your company and Bike Cabs.
If you’re interested in helping out this cause and would like more information, check out their campaign on Pozible. It’s a great cause and will definitely help reduce our beautiful city’s pollution. (Not that we have much pollution, but we’d have even less this way!)
