Most popular ride of Karachi

Rickshaws come in handy when there is a ban on double sawari on bikes and when car burning is at peak, just
as it was yesterday across much of Karachi. I love Rickshaws. Do you?

    Rikshaws are the best form of public transport out here in Karachi as they are cheap & drop you at the doorstep, no need for an extra walk. However they do add to noise & air pollution but then what kind of public transport is pollution free in Pakistan?

    CNG rikshaw is pretty ok being kinda soft regarding pollution, the petrol/LPG ones totally unacceptable

    New CNG rickshaws are better (silent, comfortable)

    All those rikshaw lovers wud be given a ride ona rikshaw. Then at the end will be asked whether they want to review there previous statement

    Personally, fasee thinks ride on a rikshaw shud be included in methods of torture that don’t leave marks on the victim

    We all like Rikshaws but CNG Rikshaws are better then these noisy LPG Rikshaws they cause too much noise and pollution so it is better to change the pic.

    Older rickshaws were horrible noisy contraptions. However the new CNG rickshaws are nothing short of a small wonder! Here we have a form of public transport that can easily be reconfigured to become the world’s cheapest car and a better way of transportation for those poor folks who carry their whole families on motorcycles.

    Rickshaws are nice,rickshaws are cool and rickshaws are everywhere….their colorful paintings and graffiti art,poetry and words of wisdom on the back fascinates me a lot….it wont be incorrect to say that over the years I learned a lot from them so they are my educators as well…..God bless Rickshaws and God bless Rickshaw driver’s(pilots) and owners….
