It was bound to happen one day... a race between a car taxi and a motorcycle taxi. The location is Madrid Click for map, Spain, and one of the Moto-Taxi Open Moto-Taxi link in a new window scooters up against a car taxi in a 6 kilometer race through the heart of Madrid. The time is just before rush hour traffic, so a lot of cars, but not jam-packed.

Both vehicles leave at the same time, and as you can guess, the motorcycle taxi arrived at the destination 10 minutes before the car. But the real race was not the time it was going to take, since the answer to that was quite obvious, but the real race was the cost.

Moto taxi vs Car Taxi

The car taxi, taking 10 minutes longer, cost €13.45, while the motorcycle taxi cost €8.50. So advantage motorcycle taxi for both time and cost. Add to that your time for the 10 extra minutes you would have spent in the cab, and we have a winner. Of course this picture goes out of the window in the winter, because you'll need to add the discomfort factor.
