If you don't have far to go but it seems a little too far to walk, go ahead and hail a pedicab.
Since pedicabs first arrived on the New Orleans scene in 2011, thousands of visitors have found them an environmentally friendly way to see the city or to go distances too short to bother with a cab. Plus, many of the drivers are also licensed tour guides with interesting tales to tell.
All pedicab drivers are licensed by the city. They operate primarily along the Canal Street downtown corridor and in the French Quarter and nearby Faubourg Marigny and Garden District neighborhoods. They have a maximum capacity of two persons per vehicle. Retractable, convertible-style canvas roofs offer protection from rain or sun. The rates per ride are $5 for the first six blocks and $1 per block per person after that. Prices are subject to change.
Pedicabs generally operate from the early morning hours until midnight on weekdays and later on weekend nights. You can hail one on the street or by calling a dispatch number.
