The City Council Agenda for May 5th, 2009 contains the wording for pedi-cabs. You can download the full agenda here. All of this is public info. I’m still not sure if pedi-cabs will work in Long Beach, but if it takes more cars off the road then how can I be against it? The one year trial was a good idea. Now we have to just wait and see…
Also for all you pedi-cab fans, Rickshawforum.com has lots and lots of info on pedi-cabs. You gotta love the internet….
