Other Means of Transportation

 Q:   Ask a Question about Other Means of Transportation       
Other Means of Transportation There are many different ways of travelling from place to place, people usually travel by car, train, aeroplane or ship, but in some countries of the world there are some unusual means of transport. Humans may ride some of the larger of these animals directly, use them as pack animals for carrying goods, or harness them, singly or in teams, to pull (or haul) sleds or wheeled vehicles.

By Bike

The cycle-rickshaw is a popular means of transport in small towns and villages in India and other parts of Asia. People sit in the back while a man on a bicycle at the front pulls them along. In some towns in India, children go to school by cycle-rickshaw because it is slow and safe and not crowded like the buses. Cycle-rickshaws are comfortable and cheap, too!

Take a Taxi!

I n Thailand, people often travel by taxi. However, the taxis there are very unusual. They are elephant taxis, and people travel around on the back of an elephant! The elephants go to a training camp where they leam how to carry passengers safely. Tthe elephants also leam not to be scared in noisy places. A ride on an elephant taxi is iot very comfortable, though, because it's very bumpy!

In Winter :

In countries where there is a lot of snow, such as Greenland and Canada, people use dog-sledges to get around. Dog-sledges are the best way to travel across the ice and snow. A team of four dogs pulls the sledge. Passengers can sit on the sledge or stand at the back for a ride. It's not very comfortable, but it's fun!
