You may have seen or heard of new rides in the Queen City ranging from tiki tours, to Uber and Lyft to even a double decker bus, but now another new mode of transportation is hitting the streets. 

It's called the “Queen City Tuk Tuk" and it's dressed up Buffalo style.
Co-owners Joseph Dietzel and Josh Bornhoeft say they were inspired to bring a Tuk Tuk to Western New York after two trips to Asia.

“With everything that's going on in buffalo and how exciting these vehicles can be we figured that the city definitely needs one,” Dietzel said.
It’s a three-wheeled open aired motorcycle. The vehicle is completely electric and holds up to six people. 
Dietzel and Bornhoeft want to eventually expand their fleet into other areas of the city and suburbs. 

“We’ll be going around the city providing people in transit vehicle between bars, nightclubs restaurants, throughout the different districts of Buffalo," Bornhoeft said.

This Tuk Tuk is made for Buffalo with its’ heated seats and side covers to protect riders during our winters.

Rides range from about $150 to $350 depending on the event.
