River City Rickshaws was the premier downtown Sacramento / Davis pedicab operation and provided the smoothest ride of pedicabs to serve the downtown area. These three-wheeled pedal cabs, the descendants of rickshaws, are powered by trained, licensed, and insured drivers who provide a fun and practical mode of green transportation. These modern day pedicabs use the technology of 21-speed mountain bikes, rear hydraulic brakes for safe braking, and rear axle differentials for tight turning.
There are many ways to catch a ride on a pedicab: you can flag a cab down, have a prearranged ride, or a rickshaw for hire.
Flagged Down Taxi
If you see a pedicab, simply talk to the driver about where you want to go. The driver is an independent contractor and can negotiate the fare with you. Tips are appreciated! Often the driver gives advice about different restaurants or events and is a short-term tour guide for you.
Often people arrange transportation for special events, such as group rides, weddings, parties, or historic tours. The quickest way to check on pricing and availability is to E-mail: [email protected]
Rickshaws for Hire
From time to time River City Rickshaws are hired or sponsored for weddings, grand opening, special events, parties, or by an advertiser to give "free rides" for a specific place and time. Pedicabs can be transported by truck for special events outside of the “normal operation area”. If your function is not within downtown Sacramento or Davis area, contact us for pricing and availability.

2008-09-04 07:35:34 Several rickshaw companies operate (operated?) in downtown West Palm Beach. Modern rickshaws are really quite nice way to get around downtown on a night out. For barhoppers it's a good way to avoid BUI, and it's a nice way to get around on a date night. —JabberWokky
2008-10-04 00:30:41 For the sake of this industry, I recommend that drivers not continue to make insulting comments to people who chose not to use the service. Just a word of advice. Don't lose future potential riders. —JoseBleckman
