The License Commission is pleased to announce the call for applications for the City of Cambridge Pedicab Pilot Program. The purpose of the pilot program is to test and create a high-performing pedicab system that fits best with the diverse transportation network in Cambridge while ensuring the utmost safety of the general public.

The City of Cambridge invites applications from all qualified pedicab companies. No individual applicant may be an owner, partner, minority holder or otherwise associated in an ownership capacity with more than one pedicab business applying for the pilot program. First priority for consideration will be given to companies currently operating in another municipality, due to the scope and purpose of the pilot program.

The License Commission will grant up to two Pedicab Business Operating Permits. The proposed duration of the pilot program is from March 1, 2013 through October 31, 2013; however, the License Commission retains the right to amend the duration of the program, particularly due to weather conditions.

Pilot Program Applications are currently available during the City’s normal business hours at the Cambridge License Commission, 831 Massachusetts Avenue. The application can also be downloaded from the Pedicab Pilot Program website:
