In Brief: Number of cyclos in cambodia down 50pc

The number of cyclos found in Cambodia has halved in the past 5 years, prompting advocates to call for public support of the dwindling transportation method. A survey by the Cyclo Centre found only 1,500 cyclos in the country this year, compared with 3,000 in 2004. Economic growth in Cambodia has driven people towards motor vehicles, and made it increasingly difficult for those who drive the foot-powered rickshaws to earn a living. “We are very concerned about the disappearance of cyclos in Cambodia,” said Nov Sarany, a coordinator with the Cyclo Centre.
