Starting this weekend you will have another transportation option in Philadelphia. Philly Bikecab will begin operations. Here is some background:
Legislation sponsored by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown and Counciman Curtis Jones Jr. to authorize Bike Cabs was adopted in January. Bikecabs carry 2-4 people and are powered by human pedaling. The Cities Street's Department issued regulations for pedicab license and operation in April that go into effect this week.
The Philadelphia Bikecab Alliance is made up of existing Bikecab Companies, including Velo-Park and Chariots of Philly.
