City of Edinburgh Council — Pedicab licensing review

Deadline 02 March 2018

Pedicabs – or rickshaws – have operated in Edinburgh since 1996. At present there are four pedicab companies, 70 licensed employees and approximately 120 pedicabs operating in the city centre.

While the City of Edinburgh Council recognises that pedicabs offer an alternative method of transport, the operation within the city has previously given rise to a number of concerns about passenger safety.

CEC are now reviewing the parts of the Council’s street trading policy which relate to pedicabs and would like to hear your views on proposals for guidance and policies on their use. The aim is to address the concerns previously raised and offer a solution to the issue of pedicab safety.

The consultation survey can be found here.

The survey is open until 2 March.
