Bright Green Autopods The Newest Way To Get Around Downtown

The newest way to get around Pittsburgh is getting people’s attention. They’re called Autopods. They’re bright green, and they’re the idea of Carnegie Mellon graduates. Tanuj Apte, Arya Tabatabai and Deepak Vidhani say it’s modeled after pedicabs in Asia or Europe, and it’s meant to take passengers short distances. While the driver pedals, there’s also a battery under the passenger’s seat that gives a little boost. They can only go 20 miles an hour.
