Pedicabs Looking for Access

Twin Cities Daily Planet, Sheila Regan Posted: Jul 15, 2008


MINNEAPOLIS A man who wants to bring a pedicab business to Minneapolis has encountered barriers that make it nearly impossible, writes the Twin Cities Daily Planet. A pedicab, also know as a rickshaw, is a human-powered bike with passenger seats. They are common in London, Amsterdam Rome, Beijing and Moscow, as well as in Boston, San Diego and Orlando. Minneapolis restricts business after 10 p.m., and prohibits operating downtown from 4 to 6 p.m. Add in the $200 licensing fee, and $1,500 insurance for each pedicab, and its difficult to earn money, says Koa Rosa, the owner of a pedicab business. Rosa is hoping the city council will change the regulations to establish more favorable conditions before the Republicans gather for their convention in Minneapolis Sept. 1.
