BICYCLES AND RICKSHAWS

TRANSPORT bosses have turned down a request from Dublin City Council to regulate the capital's burgeoning rickshaw sector.

The Department of Transport has said it has "no current proposals to progress legislation in relation to cycle taxi services at this time".

Department official John Weafer also said existing regulations "do not encompass provisions" that could be used to regulate rickshaws.

"It is considered that in order to regulate in this area primary legislation would be required to establish a legislative framework for the licensing, control and operation of cycle taxi services," he stated.

Mr Weafer was replying to a letter from the council in which the local authority asked Transport Minister Noel Dempsey to introduce rules for bicycle taxis before "serious" safety issues arise.

The so-called 'eco-cabs' have been a huge success in the city, transporting passengers quickly through congested streets.

A roads and traffic official with the council, Tim O'Sullivan, stated in a recent report: "The service itself seems to be very popular with the public. They can cause minor disruption for motorised transport. Buses can be held up behind a bicycle taxi in bus lanes. The pick-up points are on footpaths and are not legally defined.

Disruption

"The service is considered worthy of support. The operators are operating in a professional manner and seek to work with the council to ensure a minimum of traffic disruption."

The council's transport and traffic committee had agreed that a letter be sent to the Department of Transport.

Committee chairman Sean Kenny said that, at the moment, ecocabs are free and there is no regulation involved.

Cllr Kenny (Lab) said they are privately operated and make money through commercial sponsorship.
