"Cycle rickshaws" New Delhi Transportation Tip by Willettsworld

New Delhi Transportation: 89 reviews and 86 photos


Cycle rickshaws are basically a three-wheeled bicycle with a seat for two passengers behind the driver. They are cheaper than auto-rickshaws but when I took my first ride on one, I felt pretty guilty and started thinking back to how it used to be in colonial days with British masters and their Indian slaves but these guys are everywhere and they need our money in order to make a living. I saw many drivers lie on them asleep overnight so they have a tough life so bear this in mind when paying them.

Type: Bicycle
