Plans for Tuk Tuk taxi tours in Lincoln

This story is over

Yes, you might want to tuk this seriously. A new three-wheeled taxi could be on its way to Lincoln soon.

A proposal has been submitted to the City of Lincoln Council to bring a hop on and hop off Tuk Tuk taxi service.

It would take passengers on a short designated route from Castle Hill down to Martin’s Lane in Lincoln, helping people to avoid Steep Hill.

They plan to travel around the city all year round from 11am to 6pm, and even later up to 11pm on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Widely used in Asia and Portugal, a Tuk Tuk has two wheels at the back and one wheel at the front.

Tuk Tuks generally have a small cabin for the driver and room for three passengers on the back.
