NYC regulates bicycle taxis
29 July 2009

NEW YORK (AP) - The City Council has passed a bill requiring bicycle taxis to have licenses and registration.

The taxis, known as pedicabs, have gone unregulated for years in New York City.

The three-wheel vehicles with a carriage in the back are increasingly popular among tourists and New Yorkers.

Officials have wanted to regulate them for years, but a judge struck down regulations after the city tried to cap the number of pedicabs allowed on the street.

The rules passed Wednesday don't cap the number. Instead, there will be a 60-day period to apply for a license.

Pedicabs also won't be allowed in the city's pedestrian plazas.
