Ecocabs is the name given to traditional Indian rickshaw operations that are organized into a network and can be called directly by customers. Fazilka is an Indian border town with a population of less than 100 000 inhabitants. It is the first city in the world to have a dial-a-rickshaw facility.
Mahatma Gandhi once said “I would prize every invention of science made for the benefit of all.” Embracing Mahatma’s idea of “doing more, for less, for more”, the town of Fazilka has given something innovative to this world. “Ecocabs” are a low cost solution to one of the key transport dilemmas in any urban area.
