An auto rickshaw or three-wheelers (tuk-tuk, auto, rick, autorick or rickshaw in popular parlance) is a motor vehicle that is one of the chief modes of transport across many parts of South and East Asia, especially as a vehicle for hire. It is a motorized version of the traditional rickshaw or velotaxi, a small three-wheeled cart driven by a person, and is related to the cabin cycle.

Auto rickshaws are particularly popular where traffic congestion is a problem. They are common in many Asian countries such asBangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
