Frequently Asked Questions

Discover Portland’s best bars and attractions on the back of a pedicab. Cruise through the city as you pass popular Portland landmarks,  and enjoy the great beers, and spirits PDX has to offer. Portland Pedicab is great for Date Nights, Weddings, Bachelor Parties or for just exploring the city.

How many people can fit in a pedicab?

Each cab fits 2­ to 3 people depending on size. We can handle group sizes from one to 50.

What is an appropriate tip, and how are your riders paid?

Our riders are general contractors. As such, they are not paid an hourly rate and depend on your gratuity. An appropriate tip for a bare bones tour with no added trips or time is $20, but riders are happy to accept all the money you want to pay; a tip of a few hundred thousand or a million, should you win the lottery, would not be amiss 😉

What is your cancellation policy?

You can cancel your tour or event within 72 hours with no repercussions. Shorter notice results in a $10.00 rescheduling fee for tours; weddings and events will lose 10% of their deposit. All cancellations and rescheduling must be done by email to

What areas do you service? Are you available outside of those areas?

We service from 20th E Burnside to 20th SE Division across the river into downtown from the South Waterfront to Trendy 23rd and PSU. We are available to travel; contact us at and someone will contact you within 48 hours to discuss your needs.

What Our Customers Say

  • I had been exploring downtown and had wandered pretty far from my car when I saw one of the Pedicab dudes. I was walking alone in the cold and he asked me if I wanted a ride. I asked him how much it would be to go like 4 blocks and he said "Eh, free to a dollar". So, of course I hopped in! The guy was really nice and rode fast, but safe.

  • Absolutely the highlight of our trip to Portland. We booked a 2 hour brewery tour and hit 4 different tasting rooms (Apex, Lucky Lab, Cascade and Green Dragon). Matt aka Grapejuice, our tour guide, was awesome and had great recommendations for what to taste at each spot.

  • I did the East Side Brew Tour. It was a beautiful sunny day- Perfect for Pedicabbing.. Our tour guides were there to have a good time, obviously enjoyed their jobs and were well knowable about the delicious breweries we would be sampling. They changed up the tour stops based on what we'd ordered at the first stop, which i thought was really cool.
