Updated Austin pedicab rules of the road

Austin pedicab rules and regulations have been updated recently.  The Austin Police Department enacted a set of rules that specify how pedicabs are to be operated in Sixth Street and the Down Town areas.  The most salient aspect to the new rules is the updated 6th street pedicab map:

Austin Texas 6th street pedicab map

The full  text of the rules can be found in the following PDF document (8 pages):

APD’s updated pedicab rules for 6th street Austin Texas

The Austin Transportation Code has also been updated.  The updates cover pedicabs, and electric jitney (golf cart) operations.  The full text of the entire ordinance is found in the .PDF below (85 pages):

Austin Texas Municipal code CHAPTER 13-2. GROUND TRANSPORTATION PASSENGER SERVICES

Those Municipal rules have been changed and updated, but as always there are Texas state laws that govern how vehicles and bicycles are to be operated.  Below are the state laws that govern the  “OPERATION AND MOVEMENT OF VEHICLES” (81 pages):

TEXAS TRANSPORTATION CODE TITLE 7. VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC SUBTITLE C. RULES OF THE ROAD CHAPTER 545. OPERATION AND MOVEMENT OF VEHICLES.

Texas also has laws that are specific to the operation of bicycles.  These laws can be found below (11 pages):

TEXAS TRANSPORTATION CODE TITLE 7. VEHICLES AND TRAFFIC SUBTITLE C. RULES OF THE ROAD CHAPTER 551. OPERATION OF BICYCLES, MOPEDS, AND PLAY VEHICLES

The State of Texas laws listed above are not the only ones that we may encounter while operating a pedicab.  The complete Texas constitutions and statutes can be found here:

As well other Austin laws may apply to the operation of pedicabs.  All the Austin municipal codes can be found here:
