Pedicab Ride, Rally and Press Conference in Opposition to Proposed City Council Regulations Limiting Non-Polluting Transportation
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. Timeâ€™s Up! joins the Pedicab Ownerâ€™s Association against these unreasonable regulations to say:
NO CAPS â€“ NO BANS â€“ SAVE THE PEDICABS!
â€œTime’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.â€ said Timeâ€™s Up! Director, Bill DiPaola
Timeâ€™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.
