Pedicabs might soon be seen in Oxford, Miss.


OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Oxford aldermen amended the city’s taxi cab ordinance to allow pedicabs, also known as cycle rickshaws, which transport passengers in a carriage-styled seat hooked to a bicycle.

The pedicabs may only travel on streets with designated bike lanes that have a 35 mph speed limit.

The soonest pedicabs can hit the streets is Dec. 19, after a customary 30-day wait.

Two companies — Rebel Pedal and Rebel Rickshaw — propose to shuttle people between downtown and the University of Mississippi campus as well as offering downtown and perhaps campus tours.

Board of aldermen approval came Tuesday.
