Business Insider put together a list of some of the more interesting transportation methods around the world.

The Bay Area's water bikes were not among the unique transportation modes noted. Also missing: Pogo sticks.

Cuban taxis, colorful jeeps in the Philippines and toboggans in Portugal were noted as outside-the-box transportation choices. A train suspended from a monorail in Germany also made the list.

More groundbreaking than odd, MTC has looked at autonomous vehicles as a way to move people around in the future.
