Move over regular ol' pedicabs - the BicyTaxi has come to town. It seems like BicyTaxi hopes to make money off advertising on the vehicle, but the fare is supposed to be $1 per block and a $10 minimum. What's interesting is that BicyTaxi also urges people to order the vehicles in advance. We're not sure if these BicyTaxis will need to be regulated, but if they become for-public vehicles, we imagine they will.
Has anyone been on a BicyTaxi? We saw one of these BicyTaxis while we were on a Coach USA bus headed to the Port Authority. Since we had crawled from the Lincoln Tunnel to 42nd Street and 10th Avenue in about 40 minutes, it looked pretty sweet. And BicyTaxi is looking for drivers.
