The Taxi Tank

January 4, 2015 in Daily Bulletin

Having pioneered the use of ambulances as taxis, the Russians are at it again with the taxi tank:

  • A company in Russia is using former military vehicles as taxis.
  • The vehicles are painted pink to seem less intimidating.
  • Since St. Petersburg has various rivers and channels that can only be circumvented through traffic clogged bridges, the amphibious taxi can be timesavers.
  • The company’s slogan is “a safer taxi” since passengers won’t have to worry about getting injured in a traffic accident (unless there’s an RPG involved).
