Worms in the Big Apple

A few years ago an entrepreneur tried to introduce pedicabs to the Elm City; riders paid something like $50 a day to rent them and got to keep their hard-earned fares. For a little while the pedicabs could be spotted, usually making the route between Union Station and downtown. But within a few months they had all but disappeared. Apparently, there just wasn’t a market for a pedicab service in such a small city.

Not so in the Big Apple, where pedicabs have become increasingly visible in recent years. Unfortunately, the New York City Council has taken notice, and the result is an unwarranted crackdown on pedal-powered public transportation.
