Get around easily with a velotaxi

VAXI stands for velotaxi ("bike taxi") and is a combination of muscle and electrical power. Why not set an example for green mobility and energy efficiency while exploring Basel in a unique way!

The fleet consists of four velotaxis which can each carry two adults and one child for a relaxed shopping trip or a sightseeing tour. A knowledgeable driver will stop at sights or hidden gems if the passenger wants them to. And it's perfect if you're in a hurry, as shortcuts mean you'll arrive quickly at your destination.
