Now this is a fun way to zip around to explore a new city... weather permitting, that is. The City Swing is a hybrid motorbike cab painted a vibrant green to reinforce the fact that it's evidently a more eco-friendly transit choice than a yellow cab.

The designer, Gert-Jan van Breugel, calls it "a more sustainable alternative for a fast and flexible travel."

"The City Swing is a hybrid motorbike cab with seats for three people. Driven by bio-fuel or electricity, and by making use of bus-only lanes, the motorbike cab is faster, more economical and less polluting than present-day cabs."

City Swings seat a driver and up to two passengers and are 65% smaller than a taxi, giving passengers more space between lanes and making it easier to weave between traffic. Stats for Hybrid Motorbike Cab Trending: Older & Warm
