Vice-chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) Professor Albert van Jaarsveld steers a human powered pedal bus, which was developed by final-year mechanical engineering students at the UKZN Howard College Campus in Durban. The students demonstrated the bus during the annual mechanical engineering open day held at the college campus. Each saddle adjusts to accommodate shorter or taller students. The pedal bus can easily be converted to ride on the many unused railways in South Africa, which opens the door to public transport that is both cheap and healthy.
