Alternately, we could use amenity=motorcycle_taxi and amenity=pedicab(? is
this the British terminology?)
Here in Indonesia there are separate, unrelated words for each type of
hired vehicle, and they serve different markets. In a way they are all
related, just like buses, streetcars and subways are all forms of urban
public transit, but I think most people do not expect a motorcycle when
they look for a “taxi”?
But I would be happy with either option
