Tricycle is an indigenous form of the auto rickshaw and are a common means of public transportation and also the most exciting way to travel within the small cities here in the Philippines. These public utility vehicles either ply a set route or are for-hire, like taxis. Passenger tricycles can accommodate from four passengers up to as many as 9 or more, excluding the driver. One or two passengers can sit behind the driver while several more can sit in the sidecar, depending upon the design. Additional passengers can sit on the roof or stand hanging onto the side or back of the sidecar. In rainy weather, a tricycle will be completely enclosed in heavy plastic covering. You sure wanna try riding one of these thing next time you visit the Philippines!
