San Francisco Pedicabs
Rides and Fares Information
All the riders in San Francisco hold a valid California drivers license and are registered with the City of San Francisco as pedicab operators. They also all undergo a full AFIS finger print criminal background check as part of the permitting process. The pedicabs themselves are registered like taxis and we have 80 permits at this time.
A pedicab is a great way to see the city, as well as get to the places you want to go. Instead of spending your time with your head in a map, why not sit back, take in your surroundings and let someone else do all the hard work. If you're just visiting, this really is a great way to make the most of the time you have here.
Our pedicab riders are extremely knowledgeable about San Francisco, and can offer lots of useful hints and tips for seeing the city. Whether you're looking for the best restaurant in town, in need of a cafe, or hoping to see San Francisco's famous architecture, travelling by pedicab can be the best way to get to wherever you need to be. If you're keen to experience the culture of this area, then this mode of transport is certainly a good place to start.
The set fares approved by the City are $20 per mile (based on 2 people), and $5 per person for rides less than 1/2 a mile.
Pedicabs provide service to and from the Ferry Building/BART station, Hotels in Union Square and bars in the surrounding SOMA area.
The drop off area is on 3rd street, just across the road from Chase Center.
China Town. We will take people along the Embarcadero down to Battery St, passing the Levi's Headquarters, and the spot where TV was invented before turning right onto Pacific.
Here we pass the original San Francisco Fire Engine number 1 building before making our way to China Town.
The ride takes approximately 20-25 minutes. One of our most requested rides.
Some of the riders also offer a 20 minute guided walking tour as part of the ride. Be sure to ask your rider if they offer this service.
Embarcadero. You will also find pedicabs waiting at the Ferry Building and BART station to take passengers up to the wharf area, including pier 35 for cruise ships and special events.
Enjoy the 1.3 mile journey from a pedicab and smile at all the people walking along the way. Pedicab riders will be waiting out the front of the Ferry building to take passengers up to Fisherman's wharf at the beginning of the day.
Normally found at the Vallejo Ferry side of the building, from Pier 1, the riders will travel to the Wharf, Union Square and China Town.
You'll also find pedicabs waiting outside the Exploratorium at pier 15 and at Alcatraz landing at pier 33. If you also see any empty pedicab riding by, please don't hesitate to flag them down.
Fisherman's Wharf. Normally around the pier 39/41 area, you can take a ride to either of the Cable cars, Ghiradelli Square, anywhere in between, or back down the Embarcadero to the Ferry Building/BART Station.
San Francisco pedicabs also offer a deluxe wharf tour, taking in all the sights from the wharf in around 40 minutes.
The pedicab riders will be happy to answer any questions you may have and offer advice on the best way to find a restaurant or other destination.
Oracle Park. You will find San Francisco pedicabs ready to take you to Townsend St and Embarcadero for any ball game, concert, or special event.
Pedicabs are required by the SFPD to stop at Townsend St, but riders will drop you off at the Pier 40 Java House, leaving about a 150 yard walk to the stadium.
You can request being dropped off at 2nd/King Streets, but there is a bit of a hill up Townsend to get there.
