Leaps by Bayer brings the Leaps Staircase to San Francisco. This epic art installation was serviced by 15 branded pedicabs, bringing conference attendees, employees, and guests to see for themselves what the fuss was all about.
There are many ways to see the city of San Francisco, but one of the best--and surely one of the most underrated--are San Francisco pedicab tours. When you visit San Francisco by pedicab, you're getting an experience like no other! If you're still not convinced, take a look at the following 3 reasons why you should take a pedicab tour the next time you're in town.
#1: It's an eco-friendly option
Pedicabs are powered entirely by pedal, so you won’t be adding unnecessary pollution into air by taking a standard car or bus for your tour trip. You’ll definitely appreciate getting to see the city in the open air, feeling the gentle breeze and warm sun on your skin.
#2: You won't be stuck in traffic for hours
Pedicabs almost always use designated bike lanes to get around, so you won’t be stuck behind a car for hours and hours on end! Pedicab tours rarely get delayed or jammed, so you don’t have to worry about your tour being delayed for 4 hours during rush hour.
#3: You can see the best sights without spending an entire day on tour
A pedicab tour is truly a “best of the best” highlights reel. You can see some of the most memorable, unique and important sights in the city—without having to dedicate your entire day to the tour! Most pedicab tours last about 90 minutes or sometimes about 2 hours, letting you see the sights without becoming bored or overwhelmed.
There are quite a few pedicab companies operating in San Francisco, but which is the most popular operating pedicab company, San Francisco? The answer may be obvious to anyone who’s asked around about the best pedicab companies in the area or who has glanced at online reviews: Cabrio Taxi!
Why is Cabrio Taxi the most popular choice among pedicab transportees? Let’s take a closer look at why this company stands out from the rest.
They offer many different types of services
Some pedicab companies only offer basic transportation from point A to point B—and while there may be nothing wrong with that, if you’re looking for something above and beyond a simple ride, this company definitely has you covered. They offer a wide range of services, which include services related to (but certainly not limited to):
They allow for advertising
For anyone interested in pedicab advertising or pedicab branding in San Francisco, this company is an excellent choice. They offer multiple venues for businesses who want to advertise using pedicabs, which include visual advertisements on pedicab coaches and the ability to create marketing campaigns such as free ride campaigns. They have plenty of experience working with companies, organizations and event organizers, so they know how to meet the various needs of each client.
Their customer service is also worth a big mention: they strive to meet the needs of every single client, whether it’s a big business organizing an advertising campaign or an everyday Joe wanting a ride to work.
Cabrio Taxi was honored when Nancy Pili of Bicis Del Pubelo asked us to participate in the 2016 Carnavale Parade this May in the Mission District of San Francisco. Loco Bloco, an organization Bicis works closely with, produce a float in the parade each year. They are a organization who seek to "promote San Francisco youth’s healthy transition into adulthood by engaging them in the creation and performance of music, dance, and theater rooted in Afro-Latino traditions. Loco Bloco encourages its youth to use multicultural art forms as a tool for their own empowerment and as a catalyst to help them overcome discrimination and bring about change in their communities." Their programs include dancers, drummers, stilt walkers, and other performers, primarily under the age of 18, who practice all year for the parade. This year the theme they chose was Throw Love Into The Fire, and our red sparkly pedicabs were a perfect addition to their red and gold color scheme.
The pedicabs rolled through the parade with the float, dancers, stilt walkers, and wagons; helping to give breaks to those with tired feet. As Loco Bloco is comprised mostly of children dancers, the pedicabs were a welcome chance to sit down for a few minutes in the long parade, transport mobility impaired members, and help carry props for the dance crews.
Community Organizer Giovanny Roa worked with his fellow pedicabbers to organize them to participate in the parade completely voluntarily. The drivers loved the opportunity to ride in this epic parade. Loco Bloco was awarded 1st Place for Comtemporary/World/Fusion/Original Category, and we couldn't be prouder to have been involved. Thank you for including us!
This June, Cabrio Taxi will celebrate 5 years of serving San Francisco by partaking in our 3rd AIDS/Lifecycle ride. The 7-day, 545-mile landmark bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles, includes thousands of whom ride to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
As founder of Cabrio Taxi, it gives me a deep sense of pride to contribute to this cause, which is a part of this City in which I live and do business. To date, the Cabrio Taxi team has proudly raised $85,000+, and ridden 20,000+ miles training and riding for the AIDS/Lifecycle cause.

Raffle: win tickets to Levi’s Stadium
Levi's knew that they would need to give the citizens of and visitors to their longtime home something special. Super Bowl 50 -- the first ever Super Bowl in San Francisco -- would take place at their recently named namesake stadium, Levi's Stadium. For the 10 days prior to the event, The Super Bowl Host Committee would host Super Bowl City in downtown San Francisco to celebrate the historic event. Super Bowl City would be free-to-the-public fan village and will “offer a fun – and free – way for locals and visitors alike to enjoy the extravaganza that is the sporting world’s biggest annual event.... and will be designed to showcase the best the Bay Area has to offer.
As the iconic 150-year brand of the City of San Francisco, Levi’s would participate in Super Bowl City by sponsoring a concert stage at Sue Bierman Park complete with daily programing in as well as host an interactive “brand island” in the public space Justin Herman Plaza. Levi’s hoped to tie together these outdoor brand activations with other important locations and events in the City -- Levi’s Corporate Headquarters, Levi’s flagship store at Market & 4th, and the NFL Experience (the NFL's interactive theme park experience hosted at Moscone Center).
Cabrio Taxi’s fleet of beautiful pedicabs and small army of professional pedicab operators were experienced at surprising and delighting passerbyers on behalf of the Levi’s brand. Levi's determined a fully branded pedicab service, complete with collateral distribution, talking points, etc. would be the perfect platform to weave together otherwise disparate locations and events. Moreover, through the legacy 50 Fund, the Super Bowl Host Committee identified “Sustainable Environments” and “Community Investment” as two of three areas of focus for legacy impact of their event and partners. Cabrio Taxi is obviously sustainable but also proudly local, and would exclusively employ Bay Area lifestyle pedicab operators -- for whom these activations impact their livelihoods.
Please join us for our annual formal event this Sunday, November 8th, at 8pm at Presidio Bowl.
This year we are putting on a fun activity rather than a "mingle & dance". But we'd still ask that you to show up in formal attire. I saw 3 bow ties on Cabrio riders this Halloween weekend; I interpret this as a collective urge to paint a place with well-dressed peddicabbers.
$20/person will cover your bowling, shoes, and drinks for the evening. As in prior years, Cabrio will pick up the other half of the tab. Pedicabber +1s are welcome and highly encouraged.
Please help us plan by filling out the Formal RSVP. Mimosa and I can do our best to help facilitate transportation to the Presidio. If you're coming from Santa Clara, we can help build in a shower & change of clothes.
This will be a ton of fun, and it's an important tradition. So please join us. Alumni welcome.
