These bamboo taxis are so cool! They were commissioned by the mayor of Tabontabon, a town of about 10,000 people in Leyte Province, Philippines. The main method of transportation there is motorcycles, with sometimes up to 6 people crowding onto one bike. Though this method of travel is cheap, it is very dangerous, and not very environmentally friendly either! The new bamboo taxis are made 90% of bamboo, are as cheap as motorcycles, and run completely on bio-diesel. One gallon can make the cars run for 8 hours! Such a cool idea!
