Between the horrible food kids are fed at schools and the lack of exercise it isn't surprising that childhood obesity is on the rise. We have to get children to be more active. While the Pedal Powered Bus will not work everywhere, why not use it to get around the school, or for those who live near the schools?
The bike-bus was built in the Netherlands by De CafÃ© Racer and can hold 10 kids and one, presumably, adult driver. In addition, if you have a large hill or a bunch of lazy kids onboard your pedal powered bus you can always use the electric assist motors. I like it.
