Eco Taxi Tuk Tuk’s – Newcastle City Centre

The Eco Taxi Tuk-Tuk project is pretty self-explanatory. Our goal is to introduce a range of economical taxi tuk-tuks that have a fresh, contemporary, 21st century look and feel. Each electric tuk-tuk will present a 100% pollution-free city-centre commute alternative, able to carry up to 4 people at a time.

INTRODUCTION

Since cars were first introduced in the 1800s, they’ve forever changed the way humans get from A to B. However, this convenience comes at a high price. Car pollutants present a significant effect on global warming, affecting air, water, and soil quality – with a prominent effect on human health too. Things like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, particulate matter, and other car pollutants, all contribute to the devastating effects of fossil fuels on our world.

Still – car travel is often a necessity. After a long day’s work, or if you are carrying 10 bags of shopping, walking long distances isn’t always an option. Thankfully, people are taking a stand to make a change, encouraging the usage of tuk-tuk vehicles to move around our town and city centres. Tuk-tuk are a more economical and eco-friendly way to commute, and we’re about to take it one step further. This type of project has already been a huge success in Stockholm, Sweden with the city now seeing 18 eco tuk tuk’s zipping around the vast city centre.

THE IDEA

The Eco Taxi Tuk-Tuk project is pretty self-explanatory. Our goal is to introduce a range of economical taxi tuk-tuks that have a fresh, contemporary, 21st century look and feel. Each electric tuk-tuk will present a 100% pollution-free city-centre commute alternative, able to carry up to 4 people at a time. This also supports the “car-pooling” movement, seeing multiple people traveling in one car to manage congestion and minimize fossil fuel damage to the environment.

All eco-taxies will work on a cashless basis, and can be instantly booked through a downloadable smartphone app through the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app will use advanced geo-location technology to pinpoint your exact location, while providing an instant estimated time of arrival – all at the tap of a button.

One of the most exciting parts of it all is that all zero-emission taxis will be chargeable – meaning no fuel or damage to the environment. Various charging stations will be strategically situated citywide, allowing for urgent and on-the-spot recharging when and where needed.

These eco-taxis will also be refreshingly affordable for consumers, and far cheaper than most ride-sharing alternatives on the market that still rely on petrol. Tuk-tuks are becoming more and more popular worldwide. In fact, some people have even travelled the entire world relying only on these three-wheeled innovations to move around.

THE COSTS

We are aiming to crowdfund a total of 5 x eco-taxi units, which will be trailed in the bustling city of Newcastle upon Tyne. This is our initial city; however, we hope to expand our initiative and reach the rest of the country too, and one day, the world. Following our first trial in Newcastle upon Tyne, we will replicate the project in other target cities as soon as possible.

All initial project costs are segregated into various critical project demands, including:

  • Project Research
  • VOSA Inspections
  • Project Legalities
  • Taxi Software App Development
  • Charging Station Installation
  • PR Services
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Service + Maintenance
  • Legal + Insurance

 

THE BOTTOM LINE

While these vehicles may be tiny, they have larger-than-life potential. We envision a world that’s free from dependence on fuel, helping consumers save money and time while creating new opportunities for drivers, and of course, creating a better, healthier world for future generations. The Eco Taxi Tuk-Tuk project can and will redefine public transport as we know it.

After the successful delivery of this crowdfunding campaign Our Green City aims to roll out more crowdfunding campaigns to fund similar eco vehicle projects in our towns & cities throughout the UK.
