Bike Cabs Granted Another Permit To Work Evenings This Weekend

The new and tightly regulated bike cab industry got a temporary boost on 4th of July Weekend by being allowed to operate at night, a second permit has been issued for this weekend so bike cabs will be out in force on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Bike cabs are not allowed to operate in Old City, which is akin to not letting Amtrak stop at 30th Street. Let's hope that the city makes the sensible choice of freeing up bike cabs to allow these green businesses to operate where they need to so they can make a profit.
