Commute by Bike Taxi

by Josh Lipton

I was in New York City about a month ago, and I was really impressed by how many bike taxis there were. It really appears that bike taxis are taking over the city. It got me wondering what were the forces behind this strongly emerging trend. I suspect some combination of economic, fashion and environmentalism. I’m guessing that easy permitting by NYC authorities is certainly helping the trend. Either way, I’m glad to see that New Yorkers are getting on bikes more and more whether its riding a bike themselves or commuting by bike taxi.
