Mototaxis in Lima: an example of a successful coexistence between paratransit and official transportation
Friday 30 November 2018
Lima, the capital of Peru, ranks among the 35 largest urban areas in the world and is the fifth-largest in Latin America.

While it will take decades to develop a public transportation network that spans the entire urban area, the mototaxi could—thanks to its adaptability—ease this transition.
