More and more cities are getting clogged with traffic. Reason enough for Gert-Jan van Breugel to propose a more sustainable alternative for a fast and flexible travel.
The City Swing is a hybrid motorbike cab with seats for three people. Driven by bio-fuel or electricity, and by making use of bus-only lanes, the motorbike cab is faster, more economical and less polluting than present-day cabs.

The City Swing has room for three people and is 65% smaller then a regular taxi.
The motorbike cab offers multiple passenger/luggage configurations.
City Swing's on Broadway means no air pollution and no engine noise.
