How can the tricycles that go all over the streets and alleys be replaced by four-wheeled vehicles with the times?
In Benvenuto nel forum!
At the beginning of Taiwan's recovery, there was a lot of waste waiting to be rebuilt, private materials were scarce, public construction was to be expanded, and transportation was extremely inconvenient. Human tricycles and bullock carts were the most common means of transportation at that time. Back then, most of the chariots who pulled tricycles were veterans who came to Taiwan with the troops from the mainland. In order to support their families, they worked hard to earn money. They were not afraid of the cold winter, the scorching sun, the wind and the rain, and they practiced their mission with sweat. With duties, shuttle in the streets and alleys. From the 1940s to the 1950s of the telemarketing list Republic of China (the same below), in addition to the mobile vehicles that did not have a fixed location to pick up passengers, the tricycles that were scheduled all had a fixed parking and waiting area. Everyone called it a station, and the tricycles parked their cars. Wait in the queue next to the station (Picture 1). When there is a customer who needs to call a car, the chauffeurs will take the guests in the order of the shift. There is no price set for the fare, and the customer must negotiate with the chauffeur. Therefore, there are often scenes of chauffeurs bargaining with the guests on the streets. The bidding process of you coming and going and the crowd, the chaotic scene is really lively. gem_01 Photo Credit.

Under the rolling, it gradually declined. The rapid rise of taxis (Figure 2) has greatly reduced the business of traditional tricycles. Since tricycles are far less competitive than taxis, the relationship between tricycles and taxi drivers has become tense.
