An answer to Amsterdams traffic congestion is at hand. The Tuk Tuk Company is introducing auto rickshaws known as tuk-tuks in October. The three-wheeled tuk-tuks are a common sight in South East Asian cities such as Bangkok, as their high power to weight ratio makes them nimble in heavy traffic. Amsterdams tuk-tuks (so-called for the sound made by the two-stroke engine while idling) will have a preliminary run at the beach resort of Zandvoort over the summer, ferrying passengers to and from the train station along the sea-front boulevard. The service is available from 11.00-23.00 daily as of 1 July at a cost of 2.50.
