Trolley in the PH - This is a unique form of transport here in PH. Though quite dangerous because they travel thru the train's rail. They will quickly get up and carry this if a train will pass by.
Here in PH, we have what we call trolleys, these are carts that are pushed manually in a train rail. It is really dangerous because they are working their way thru the train rails and they will quickly get out of it if a train will pass by.

Hi staria. I think that trolleys are only permitted to use if the train's rails are free. If this is right, trolleys are great. However, trolleys are used on the active train's rails? It's very very dangerous!

jeepney - jeepney in the Philippines. the king of the road
we also have the jeepney in the Phil. I'm not sure if other countries have it but this has become like a national symbol of the roads in my country. It can carry around 20 people and is the most common form of public transportation.

In Norway, we have a "winter special" called a kicksled or "spark". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kicksled Spark means kick, and you make it move by kicking with one foot. It's quite popular inland, in some towns with lot of snow in the winter they have decided that they're not going to grit both pavements, only one, and leave the other with snow/ice so you can go there without ruining your spark. If you go to Northern Norway as a tourist in winter, you can take dogsled tours or reinddeersled tours. There's also championships for being dragged behind a reindeer on skies :-)
