Hello people of New York City and surrounding areas! RR is preparing to take its show on the road this weekend. We’ll be exhibiting – and also providing pedicab service – at NYC’s first ever Green Festival, running 10am-7pm on Saturday, April 21 and 11am-6pm on Sunday, April 22.
From 10am-2pm Saturday and 11am-2pm Sunday, RR pedicabs will be providing complimentary rides from Penn Station (33d & 8th) to Javits North (40th & 11th). Get your advance copy of the Festival guide from Green Festival ambassadors stationed by billboard trikes at Penn Station and Times Square.
At the festival, be sure to pick up an Eco Tote bag – there’s a special surprise from RR in there! Then, head over to Booth 127 (in the Transportation section) for a fresh new take on pedicab identity; the debut of the Revolution, televised; and an exclusive preview of RR’s very own hyperlocal currency.
Once you’ve absorbed enough green to make Shrek jealous, head over to the 40th Street exit for pedicab dispatch. Use your Green Festival Bucks (included in some admission packages) for full or partial payment of your fare anywhere in Midtown West (defined, for our purposes, as the area bounded by West 30th & 50th Streets and 7th & 12 Avenues).
Come on over and visit! Go for a ride! Our mission for the weekend is to give as many New Yorkers as possible a taste of life in the trike lane.
