Pedal you little ones

Designed and built in the Netherlands by De Café Racer, this pedal-powered bus can accommodate 10 little ones and an adult driver. This would be pretty cool idea in the US, actually. because this would help reducing pollution, prevents kids from getting grease dripping fats and also tiring them out= shutting them up.

As you might have guessed, most of kids are notoriously lazy thus it might not have enough pedal power, or kids too obese to get going. (not great power/weight ratio)

So, the bus-bike also has an auxiliary electric motor in case the little passengers are lazy and useless. The driver should make them walk home.

  1. I saw what was called a pedal bar the other day driving through Minneapolis. I wanted to get on so bad. I imagine it moves slower and slower the further it gets along, but it sounds like a badass idea.

  2. i hope the driver doesn't have to pedal too. when i was but a child they sometimes put me off the school bus and made me walk home. i didn't mind.

  3. child labor?? Just kidding.
