OSLO, Norway, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The world is today endowed with spectacular and sophisticated transport options. In big cities where there are massive populations, getting around and about can be tough yet even in the midst of modern transport systems, keen observers have revealed a number of weird transport alternatives that not many people knew existed. According to urban planners the biggest challenge in big cities is creating transport systems that are flexible enough to meet the needs of the millions of city residents. Although transport alternatives these days are growing, a lot of people still aren't able to find alternatives that work for them the best way they want.
The underground Funicular in Turkey is actually rated as one of the most weird transport alternative in the world. Established in 1874, this is one of the oldest underground in the world. As weird as it may be, the underground is very efficient and in fact, in 2006 the Turkish government in response to the success of the underground added a new funicular. Urban planners note that authorities should promote transport systems that work for the people. The Cyclo in Vietnam is a perfect example of such transport means. The tricycle taxi is actually one of the most used means of transport in Vietnam. A lot of locals however look at it as an easy way to avoid the traffic jams every day.
Observers also note that the Canal Taxi in Bangkok is yet another weird transport alternative which has worked very well for locals here. The Canal Taxi is simply a boat which offers a more comfortable alternative to the big city traffic. The truth is a lot of urban areas are constantly looking for new ways to improve transport alternatives. The chicken bus in Central America has also been a nice option especially for people looking for affordable commuter transport. Analysts observe that the chicken buses are the most popular transport options in South America today. The camel bus in Cuba is also another version of the chicken bus.
Speed is also a very important definitive in gauging the convenience and efficiency of transport. The Maglev Train in Shanghai is a good example. The train runs for over 400 kilometers an hour and it connects the busy city with the main airport. The Chiva express in Eduardo however brings in a twist from just speed and convenience. This is the kind of transport designed for people who love sightseeing every day. Transport experts however note that traditional means of transport such as bicycles and cars are still finding space in the sophistication of transport systems in big cities. The Hovercraft in the UK for example is one of the major tradition transport option that is still in great use today.
During winters though, transport can be tough yet cities have still found new and better ways to improvise. The Ice Angel in the US is the ideal transport alternative on cold winters. In Cambodia though, observers say that here tradition meets sophistication where traditional carts are fitted with modern engines to help move people in and around cities.
