About our discussion he says, "As ride-sharing explodes in Manhattan, traffic and congestion are worsening as tens of thousands of new, gas-powered cars hit the streets and millions of new trips are taken.  This growth, coupled with years of under-investment in the subway and mass transit infrastructure, is creating a perfect, or rather imperfect storm, which is causing city traffic to grind to a near halt. HOST has begun to tap into a long-overlooked city resource, the pedicab, to introduce zero-emission vehicles, reduce traffic and congestion, and bring some good old fashioned joy into the city's transportation mix."
