Trishaw of Penang

 

The cycle rickshaw is a small-scale local means of transport; it is also known by a variety of other names such as bike taxivelotaxipedicabbikecabcyclobecabecaktrisikadtricycle taxi, or trishaw.

As opposed to rickshaws pulled by a person on foot, cycle rickshaws are human-powered by pedaling. Another type of rickshaw is the auto rickshaw.

They are a type of tricycle designed to carry passengers on a for-hire basis.

In Malaysia, pedestrian-pulled rickshaws were gradually replaced by cycle rickshaws (beca in Malay). Cycle rickshaws were ubiquitous up to the 1970s in cities. Since then, rapid urbanization has increased demand for more efficient public transport, resulting in dwindling cycle rickshaw numbers. Today, cycle rickshaws are operated mostly as a tourist attraction, with small numbers operating in MalaccaPenangKelantan and Terengganu
