HAVANA TIMES – Along the streets of Havana a peculiar innovative means of transportation that stands out are the three-wheel bicycle taxis or “Bici Taxis”.

Although already operating for around a decade, Cuban ingenuity in search of a way to increment low incomes has unleashed imagination and have given life to a versatile means of transport.

They began to offer their services in Old Havana but now we see them in other places around the city.

If we stop to observe each of these devices that occasionally help us avoid a dry bath our Havana sun, we can see in their decorations the artistic to humorous touch of the owners.
