  • What is a pedicab and how does it work?
    A pedicab is a shuttle tricycle made to transport people from place to place just like a taxicab. Other names for pedicab are cycle rickshaw, bike taxi, velotaxi, pedicab, bikecab, cyclo, beca, becak, trisikad, tricycle taxi, or trishaw. Pedicabs shouldn't be confused with rickshaws which are pulled by a person on foot. Pedicabs are electric or operated by a person pedaling.

Our pedicab tour guides have passed all inspections and requirements to ensure your safety.
