Gallery: Pedal-Powered Bus is Almost Too Cool for School

This bright vehicle can accommodate up to ten kids and an adult driver, has gears, a music player and an auxiliary electric motor.

Attending school everyday has never more eco-friendly and fun! Dutch company De Café Racer developed a pedal-powered school bus that turns going to school into a happy, healthy and cooperative experience. This friendly and bright vehicle can accommodate up to ten kids and an adult driver, and even features a music player to blast all those sweet school bus tunes. The bus also comes equipped with an auxiliary electric motor just in case kids get tired. And if it starts raining, a sailcloth roof can easily be mounted to ensure the kids arrive at school nice and dry.

    I actually like this idea. This is perfect for small local or rural schools. Perfect for newly emerging schools in the Third World. It’s perfect for all those fat children.
