Cabrio and the Cabinet of Curiosities

Cabrio and the Cabinet of Curiosities

Cirque du Soleil's Big Top has encamped at San Francisco's ATT Park until January 18, 2015 with their current show, Kurios - Cabinet of Curiosities. With whimsically steampunk aesthetics coupled with spectacular acrobatics, our crew had the privilege of seeing Cirque's final dress rehearsal before the premiere and we were blown away. Critics say that it's the best show the Cirque has performed in years. And we agree.

Kurios-themed pedicabs are currently making up parts of our fleet and we will make a special effort to have these pedicabs available to Kurious guests before shows at:

  • 8 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays
  • 4:30 and 8 p.m. Fridays-Saturdays
  • 1:30 and 5 p.m. Sundays

Look for us between our Ferry Building Pedicab Stand and ATT Park. We can't wait to get you to Le Chapiteau!

Cabrio Taxi and the Fish

Cabrio Taxi and the Fish

Last week a group of us had the pleasure of being guests of San Francisco's Aquarium of the Bay. Since many of us spend a fair amount of time transporting passengers to Pier 39, it was great to learn more about the facility, where the aquarium is located. The aquarium staff and the fish put on a great show for us. Paired with the expertise of aquarium naturalists, we explored displays and traversed three hundred feet of tunnels through a 700,000 gallon aquarium holding close to 20,000 animals that represent the native populations of the San Francisco Bay. We also made our way through the Aquarium's splash zone where we could reach out and touch some of these fascinating creatures. As we are usually headed in different directions when we're pedicabbing around the wharf, the aquarium photographer also made a remarkable accomplishment when he was able to keep us all in one place and have us pose with one of the aquarium's seven gill sharks without trepidation. We look forward to connecting our customers with this extraordinary place, and thank the Aquarium for this wonderful experience.
