In Namibia people are addressing their need for low cost transportation of sick and injured people to hospitals and medical centers.
This bike trailer is being developed and is expected to be a great improvement in communities that don't have access to motorized vehicles.

It is great to see that in Malaysia people still appreciate the trishaw I think in some parts people still have fond memories of when they were more commonly used as transport. They now seem to have become an endearing part of Malaysia's cultural heritage. As the following report on the Chinese New Year Open House celebration in Malacca shows trishaws hold a special place in the hearts of many Malaysians. I hope Malaysia is able to look to the trishaw as appropriate urban transport for the modern age as well as a romantic reminder of their past.
