    Interesting idea. Gonna be a little wet in the winter months when the wind blows the rain in the "cab."

    More on the bikes coming to a UPS service enter near you. No CDL required !

    UPS is trading trucks for tricycles in some cities. Cargo trikes could also roll in Philly one day
    When UPS announced it would start using a battery-powered cargo tricycle to make some of its downtown deliveries, the mayor greeted the plan with open arms.
    The delivery giant had already deployed similar e-bikes in Oregon, Florida, and several European cities, and now urbanites in Pennsylvania would get to see a cyclist clad in a familiar brown uniform bringing parcels to shops and offices without jamming narrow city streets and pumping exhaust into the air.
    “We welcome solutions like the UPS eBike to reduce traffic congestion and tackle urban growth,” the mayor said. “We encourage companies like UPS to work with our residents and businesses to create innovative solutions to the complex urban challenges we face every day.”
    UPS first tested e-bikes in Hamburg, Germany in 2012. The company says it now does inner-city delivery by foot and bike in more than 30 cities, including Dublin, London, Paris and Rome, and may start using bikes in some Asian cities. Its first U.S. pilot began in Portland, Oregon in 2016 and lasted a year. That was followed in 2017 by e-bikes in Pittsburgh and Fort Lauderdale, which remain in use.
