Executive Staff

  • Gregg Zuman

    Founder, Sales Manager

    Gregg Zuman

    Founder, Sales Manager

    At thirteen, Revolution Rickshaws’ founder and sales manager Gregg Zuman landed his first cycling gig: delivering The Boston Globe in his hometown of Wellesley, MA. That was 1986. He’s been pedaling pedaling ever since.

    After extensive forays into NYC bike messengering, financial editing services, and local party politics with the New York State Green Party in the 1990s and early aughts, Gregg in 2003 climbed into the saddle of a pedicab for the first time. Within two years of this surprisingly momentous occasion, Gregg birthed Revolution Rickshaws, L.L.C., co-founded the New York City Pedicab Owners’ Association, and set himself up as U.S. agent for U.K. bikemobile manufacturer Cycles Maximus. Initially a pedicab rental operation sporting a fifteen-strong fleet, Revolution Rickshaws more than doubled in fleet size and approached a half million dollars in annual revenue as operations expanded to include experiential promotions, filmtrike logistics, and last-mile delivery solutions—as Revolution’s original revenue stream from pedicab rentals dried up due to market conditions. Today, Gregg continues to wear a number of hats as he drives innovation in the bikemobile sector—as well as with passengers in Midtown after all these years. He possesses a B.A. in Politics from Occidental College.

Livedrive Vehicles (LV)

Livedrive Vehicles (LVs) are vehicles powered exclusively by living energy. The power driving the vehicles is derived from muscle, sun, wind, or water—either directly or though offgrid (NOT ongrid) means; in this way, we can be certain the provenance of our power. It’s our commitment to become fully livedrive in our fleet by 2025, as today we receive grid-tied electricity.

Our LVs  are driven partly by electricity and partly by our skilled drivers themselves! What modes may be considered LVs? Hybrid unicycles, bicycles, tricycles, and quadricycles, as well as trailers attached to any one of them (except the unicycles!). What’s remarkable about these modes? They outperform motor vehicles in and around cities—now more than at any time in memory. LVs travel faster than the speed of NYC (4-9 mph according to NYCDOT) regardless of vehicle congestion, and they honor the cityscape including residents.

Revolution empowers companies, customers, and city residents to forge deeper relationships with the ways goods and services move about NYC. In partnership with our vendors and customers, Revolution creates capacity for New Yorkers to generate the superior performance we’re so driven to produce—while honoring our citizenry, land, and ecology in the process.
