The auto rickshaws, called tuk-tuks, have long been an alternative means of transportation for the low-income Lebanese who cannot afford to take the taxi.

The three-wheeled tuk-tuks have become even more popular in Lebanon recently, due to the continued rise in taxi fares caused by a worsening fuel shortage amid an economic crisis.
