On such taxis, no traffic jams are for sure! In Thailand, this type of taxi has long gained popularity. Motorcycle taxis are called motosai there and you can catch them almost everywhere.

4. Zootaxi

Unfortunately, the taxi services we are used to do not always have a positive attitude towards the transportation of dogs, cats, and other animals in the cabin of their cars. It was for this purpose that zootaxi was invented. Now a trip to a veterinary clinic, a hotel for dogs, or just a park is not a problem at all!
