Thursday Video - The Buscycle

Passengers must pedal on the buscycle
Our featured video this week is "TU Buscycle - The Human Powered Bus". It is the creation of the Sustainable Research Unit at Tokyo University. It weighs a couple tons and can seat up to 20 passengers, who have to pedal to drive the vehicle forward at speeds up to 12 miles per hour. It requires at least four people pedaling to move the bus. I don't know what they do when they're down to only three people on the bus. The video runs for one minute and fifty-six seconds.
