The city of Yangzhou is divided into two parts, the eastern and the western areas. The eastern area is mainly in an old style, with the streets quite narrow and accessible only for buses, making the manpower tricycle the most practical type of transportation there.
The starting price for the manpower tricycle is 4 yuan ($ 0.62), with 1 yuan for an extra km. However, people are accustomed to giving a rough estimate of the distance. It's suggested to discuss the price with the driver before getting into the tricycle.
