A new form of taxis could be coming to La Crosse.
The city's bicycle and pedestrian advisory committee
is looking at a suggestion from one of its members
to allow bicycle taxis on the roads.
Bigger cities like Minneapolis and Madison have already
adopted the idea.
before jumping onboard the pedicab idea.
they want to give it a test run .
The city is looking at incorporating them into bikefest
in a couple of weeks as a fun way for people to explore
there are some concerns over safety.
and what it could mean for drivers.
From my discussion with the pedicab representive,
keeping them off the highways, keeping them off like
3rd and 4th street is going to be important because
when there's traffic it could be rough.
The committee is still looking into things like licensing
and safety measures.
Bike fest kicks off labor day weekend.
