Cambridge officials are seeking applicants to run pedicab companies in the city for eight months next year.
Pedicabs, or three-wheel bicycles used to transport people, will be tested during a pilot program announced by the Cambridge License Commission in a press release Tuesday.
The Commission will grant as many as two pedicab business operating permits for the pilot program, which will run from March 31 to Oct. 31.
According to the city, the purpose of the pilot program is to test and create a high-performing pedicab system that fits with the diverse transportation network in Cambridge while ensuring the utmost safety for the public.
Commissioners will give first priority for consideration to pedicab companies already operating in another municipality.
The pedicab program applications are due by Jan. 7 and are available at the License Commission at 831 Massachusetts Ave, or can be downloaded online here.
