In 2017, Austin’s Bicycle Advisory Council asked that all city departments work to provide reasonable accommodations and access for effective pedicab service during events and in traffic plans. Pedicabbers continue to face difficulties during special events, including a lack of dedicated lanes and staging areas. As a Council Member, will you take action to support the use of pedicabs and other non-automotive vehicles at special events?

Yes. Short distance trips account for so much of our transportation needs, especially during special events, and pedicab services are critical to and practical on many for addressing this need; protections for these services should be integral to maintain the availability of the services and also maintain safety for pedicabbers and passengers alike.
