Pedicab Ride, Rally and Press Conference in Opposition to Proposed City Council Regulations Limiting Non-Polluting Transportation

6:20 PM EST on February 12, 2007

The City Council Consumer Affairs Committee is set to vote on regulations that would put a very low cap on the total number of pedicabs in the City and ban certain types of pedicabs from City streets. Time’s Up! joins the Pedicab Owner’s Association against these unreasonable regulations to say:

NO CAPS – NO BANS – SAVE THE PEDICABS!

“Time's Up! and its volunteers helped start the Pedicab business in New York City; over the last decade it has successfully grown to over 500 cabs. This non-polluting transportation needs to be respected and encouraged by the City and not discouraged with laws that would hinder its growth.” said Time’s Up! Director, Bill DiPaola

Time’s Up! volunteers will rally among diverse Pedicab supporters which include elected officials, alternative transportation advocates, environmental activists and consumers of this popular new form of NYC transportation.
