Pedicabbing

  • PediChad – a blog by an Austin pedi-cab driver named Chad
  • ABC News: No Free Rides — Regulations Cripple ‘Pedicabs’ – This is an older story but a good one. It is hard issue on how to protect the public without hurting the pedi-cab industry. I’m inclined to think the best way to benefit all concerned is to require licences but for the city to subsidize or even pay for the insurance. Why not? Cities subsidize buses because they reduce pollution and traffic so why not pedicabs? They are far more efficient than buses. Not just less pollution but instead ZERO pollution.
