College PediCab Tours LLC

College Pedi Cabs is a sustainable tourism company that is designed to help colleges sell their most under utilized asset, the city they are located. Many colleges lack the resources to show potential students the city around the campus and help them understand how the University and the city help each other. These students get the opportunity to experience the city culture first hand and get to see where all of the popular destinations are in town. College Pedi Cabs use start of the art cabs that place students and their families in front of the driver instead of having them behind the driver. This gives them the benefit of being able to see 360 degrees and have our drivers be able to communicate with them easier. The cabs are also equipped with electric assist engines that allow the bikes to travel quickly and put less strain on the driver. The engines also capture the kinetic energy of the biker while they are pedaling creating for energy for the bike.. This 100% electric engine is the first of its kind to be place on a pedi cab.
