LCCI react to new regulation for rogue Pedicabs

Thursday 25 April 2024

Following Royal Assent for the Pedicabs (London) Bill, Karim Fatehi MBE, Chief Executive of the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry said: “We are delighted to see that the Pedicabs (London) Bill, which will regulate the use of pedicabs in Greater London, has today been given Royal Assent. In recent years, rogue pedicabs operators have negatively affected the global image of London as a great place to visit.

“We have long campaigned on the need to regulate pedicabs in order to ensure that the experience of visitors to London is as safe as possible, and that tourists to our capital are not taken advantage of and charged extortionate amounts for short-distance travel. The Government has taken strong action following our complaints on this problem and this new licensing regime will protect businesses and visitors alike.

“We are pleased that TfL will have the necessary ability to regulate pedicabs under the new regime and we will continue to support TfL in its efforts to maintain London’s world-class transport network.”
