If we saw in history moped is first hybrid vehicle,moped stands for (motor+pedal). It has alternative source of power with pedals like bicycle.It provides economical and safe transport but now moped designed by many companies without pedals.
Basically it is slow speed vehicle as compare to regular motorcycles.Its speed is maximum 45 km/h.Due to slow speed the legal driving age for moped is lower then for regular motorcycles which gives relief to school or college students.

I am very surprised to listen about this motorcycle is used as a taxi services in many countries of the world.Motorcycle taxi carry only one passenger who rides behind the motorcycle operator or driver.
The main reason of use this public transport because it is cheapest as compare to car taxi.
Different countries have their own term for this vehicle.for example in U.K it is known as passenger bike.
The term boda-boda is used for motorcycle taxi in East Africa.
It is note that in some European countries where this service exist like U.K,Sweden, have specific bikes which equipped with necessary modification for passenger facility,while an ordinary bike in many countries like China,India,Indonesia is uses for this purpose.
