Events: How We Wow

Successful event transport is a collaborative process. Revolution Rickshaws works closely with you to understand what will make your event truly special, and create custom itineraries that take advantage of our unique access to some of the city’s most iconic, picturesque sites.

Our NYC pedicab and rickshaw drivers are fit, friendly, and determined to makes sure your special evening is truly remarkable. They’re fluent in English, Spanish, and French.

Why waste part of your special night in a bland motor vehicle waiting in its back as your driver attempts to maneuver through endless motorized traffic?

Revolution Rickshaws are fast, flexible, and fun. Safe, reliable service means you can enjoy your special evening stress free. Each NYC pedicab accommodates 2 passengers, and RR can create a custom experience with up to 50 pedicabs to suit your party’s needs.

Party Animals

Client: Crispin Baynes

The Challenge: Keep guests excited and engaged throughout a day-long 40th birthday party that took place at multiple locations. Did we mention that all 50 guests were dressed as zoo animals?

The Revolution Rickshaws Solution: 20 pedicabs were deployed, each one driven by a driver dressed as a zookeeper! The menagerie of party animals debarked from a yacht at Chelsea Piers and had a whirlwind, raucous ride downtown to Wooly, a club under the Woolworth Building.

Results: A great time was had by all. This once in a lifetime event will be remembered by everyone who was part of it – or witnessed the parade of Party Animals wheeling by!

We had an amazing time and your guys were fantastic. If anyone asks you for a reference on RR just tell them to call me. Kind regards.

Event Experiences FAQs

Click a question below to view the answer:

I want to use your pedicabs for an event I’m planning, but I want to use my own drivers. Is that okay?

No, it’s not. To limit liability, and ensure compliance with NYC law, we require that any RR pedicab used to transport people be driven by an RR-vetted driver. You may hire a pedicab with a driver; you may not hire a pedicab and provide your own driver except in very unusual circumstances.

New York City streets can be crazy. Is it safe to drive – or ride in – a trike?

In our experience, both pedicabs and freight trikes are some of the safest vehicles you can drive or ride in, on city streets. They’re large, hard to push around, and easy to see. They can zip through Midtown traffic, but they still have low maximum speeds.

How much does a pedicab / rickshaw ride cost?

It varies dramatically, from driver to driver. As of June 28, 2013, all NYC pedicab drivers are required by law to charge by the minute, and the calculate time with a DCA-approved timer affixed to the cab in view of the passengers. They are required to post the per-minute ride on both sides of the pedicab’s exterior, and on the post of the driver’s seat. They are not allowed to charge per person, only per ride. Most drivers charge $2-3 per minute. However, they are legally permitted to set their per-minute charge as high as they want.

How many people/how much weight can a rickshaw carry?

By law, pedicabs may carry no more than three people. For plus-sized persons, we recommend going with two people per cab. All our trikes are rated to carry up to 550 pounds; we can haul heavier loads on occasion, but we don’t like to do so too often – we don’t want to stress out our trikes. Most of our cargo boxes have a capacity of about 35 cubic feet – they’re about 3 feet wide, 3 feet high, and 4 feet long.

How fast do the rickshaw’s travel?

We unscientifically estimate that dudes on trikes average about 6 miles per hour. Not bad, considering that the average speed for motor vehicles in Manhattan is about 9 mph – and their average speed crosstown is just 4.5 mph.

Where do your rickshaws operate? Are the rickshaws only available in Manhattan?

Pedicabs are concentrated in Midtown Manhattan and Central Park, since that’s where demand is strongest. However, with advance notice, RR is able to provide pedicab service in all 5 boroughs, as well as parts of New Jersey. Currently, our freight trikes and mobile billboards also operate mostly in Manhattan, but we do go to Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx on occasion, and are looking to bulk up operations in Brooklyn in the near future.
