Council considers pedicab rules

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus City Council today begins the process of creating regulations governing the city’s human-powered “pedicabs,” which operate in the Arena District, Short North and the OSU campus area.

Public Safety and Judiciary Committee chair Michelle Mills holds a public hearing to discuss proposed new code to regulate the rickshaw-like conveyances, increase consumer protections and safety.

The proposed code will incorporate a number of existing regulations that apply to taxicabs and other vehicles-for-hire, council spokesman John Ivanic said.

Some three—or four-dozen pedicab operators support the regulations, which will also protect them from uncompetitive pricing, Ivanic said.
