Rickshaws on German Streets: A Trans- Portation Revolution? Nasser Nouri is set to save the environment, reduce Germany's high unemployment, and help Germany and China patch up relations in the process. The Frankfurt-based rug dealer plans to import more than 5,000 bicycle rickshaws from a Chinese manufacturer. A handful of rickshaws already ply the streets of a half dozen German cities catering largely to tourists and couples looking for unconventional ways to manifest their love, but Nouri believes the demand is much greater. Since early May, he and his son have presided over a fleet of 35 rickshaws in Frankfurt, offering half hour tours of Germany's financial capital. Frankfurt, though, is only the beginning. Nouri talks of soon having 3,500 pedalers in his employ throughout Germany. [Week in Germany, July 5, 1996]
