Pedicab Drivers

Street vendor passing by other street vendors

Some pedicab drivers waited for customers on the edge of the street

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

There were other businessmen did business in the crossings. It was common to see pedicab drivers there. I thought the number of pedicab in the streets decreased compared with 8 years ago. Yet it was still a major transportation system for locals. In near future, it might be superseded by taxi in the big cities like Yangon.

When I came to a crossing, some drivers waited for customers coming. The driver sat on the passenger seat and looked at the traffic without paying attention. The configuration of pedicab here is different from pedicabs in neighbor countries. It was similar neither to cycle rickshaw in Southasian countries nor Cyclo in Vietnam. Its passenger seat was attached beside the bicycle like a sidecar. In fact, locals called it 'Saiq-ka', the word derived from English sidecar.
