Making Greenville greener one pedal at a time. Meet Greenville Bike Taxi, the city’s newest pedicab service.
Phil Gonzalez — a recent Charleston transplant and nine-year pedicab driver — cofounded Greenville Bike Taxi with his father, Leonard, and stepmom, Joy. The business offers a green (and scenic) way to get around downtown.
How can I ride?
There are three ways to ride — all ages (and pups) are welcome on board:
- Call to schedule a pickup — estimated wait times are 5-10 minutes.
- Find a Greenville Bike Taxi parked near its HQ across from Gather Greenville or along Main Street.
- Make a reservation online — pedicabs can be reserved for a date night out, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and even wedding send-offs, complete with a “Just Married” sign.
Where can I ride?
Greenville Bike Taxi serves the downtown Greenville area — between Fluor Field and Bon Secours Wellness Arena and between Cleveland Street and the West End. When it comes to roads 35 MPH or faster, it’s a no-go.
When can I ride?
Catch a ride Monday-Sunday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (weather permitting).
What’s the cost to ride?
It’s $7 per person for up to 10 minutes. For 10 minutes or more, it’s $.70 per minute per person.
How do I pay?
Greenville Bike Taxi accepts most forms of payment, including cash, credit card, and mobile pay, like Venmo.
