Don't puke in my pedicab
We're talking about Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Take a tour on a "rickshaw"...it's a pedicab and Brogan Graham will talk about his business. Entertainment near and around E. Las Olas Blvd and other parts of the area hearing from the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.Jessica Taylor from tourism tells us about the beach area and abutting communities.
Guest: Steve Meyer, Founder and CEO, Mainstreet Pedicab. Pedicabs are human-powered taxis seen in many of the major cities around the world. They work well for not only transporting people, but also for the delivery of food and merchandise.
In a world that is becoming overwhelmed with too many cars, pedicabs offer a green and sometimes romantic alternative. Steve Meyer didn't invent the pedicab, but he is in the process of perfecting the marketplace for it. Steve started out in real estate development, and his story about the insights he gained, and how he developed Mainstreet Pedicab is a great example of a sustainable business model.
