Start Your Own Pedicab Service

Just a couple weeks ago I wrote about Jax Bike Taxi starting up service in Jacksonville. Now on Craig's List I find someone in Orlando selling a couple of pedicabs. Can Jacksonville support more than one pedicab service?

As the owner of Jacksonville's only pedicab service I believe that there is room for my people to add their pedicabs to the streets, especially in downtown. I own WhyWalk Pedicabs now and would suggest not investing in them. I have had nothing but problems with them. Their only advantage is their price tag which is much lower than othe cabs out there. For those seriously considering a pedicab puchase I would recommend looking at Main Steet Pedicabs. The price tag is a little higher but the quality is much better. Looking back I would have traded low price for better quality. I would be more than happy to help those along that are considering starting a pedicab business here in Jax.

Hey, My name is Jesse Duffie and I'm a native of Charleston, South Carolina. I am a recent graduate of The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina and am looking at starting a Pedicab business in Jacksonville Beach. They are a hit here in Charleston, its just we have 3 companies already. We all get along real well here, but I want to start a company somewhere else. If you know anyone that is selling Pedicabs please email me at [email protected] Thanks bro

There is a pedicab company in my town, and I would like to work for it, but they require drug tests, background screening and finger prints to be taken. As well as monthly insurance and other strange fees. I did the math, and if i bought one of these bikes, could make it back pretty fast.

just wondering if there is any sort of legal issues about having a personal pedicab and just using it to make tips.
