The only way to pay for your fare on this Finnish taxi is to sing

As transportation gimmicks go, this is interesting.

Ruisrock is a music festival based in Turku, Finland, which regularly attracts around 100,000 people. Moving folks around the area can be a challenge, so shuttles are a must.

A BMW i3 electric car has been pressed into service. The only currency the driver will accept is singing.

There’s a karaoke-type screen in the back seat and the driver will only keep moving if you keep singing. Take a look.

I’ll walk, thanks. (Via
