Pedicabs as a Mobile Film Platform

Commercial film crews love using our pedicabs for productions in San Francisco. Unlike golf carts, pedicabs do not require additional permitting and can operate in parks and on paths where motorized vehicles are prohibited. Our rates are competitive and we are frequently a lower cost option than a rickshaw or cart rental.

Film grips and operators have been thoroughly impressed by how much better a camera-rigged pedicab is than a traditional steadicam rickshaw. There’s significantly more room for the operator to work, and the ride is remarkably smooth and stable.

Whenever possible we include a pedicab driver with film industry experience to help your shoot roll smoothly.

Please note that we do not include rigging equipment. Suction cups work very well on the fiberglass body.
