The Urban Snail is a gigantic mechanical snail on wheels that rolls along vacuuming the sidewalks and using what it vacuums for fuel. It never stops but it moves slowly. If you're not particularly in a hurry, hop on. Route maps can be found in the saddlebags.

       " vacuuming the sidewalks and using what it vacuums for fuel "   

       That's going to make for some ill-scented exhaust fumes.
