About Movemint Bike Cab:

Movemint started in April 2009 after Dave and Ken tired of encountering too many limitations in the traditional nightly pedicab rental marketplace. Starting with 4 pedicabs, Movemint has organically grown to meet the demand of its riders to a fleet of 53. Movemint currently operates in Austin and Arlington, Texas.

  1. I bought the classic pedicab from Main Street Pedicab last October and established a small one unit business here in Weatherford, Texas. No one is biting. I drive a school bus M -F and operate Pedicab on Sat and Sun. Local Police dept. says if I charge a fair I must have a Permit to solicit. ($50.00 for 45 days) Restrictions: can’t work on Sun. or anytime after 6PM or before 9AM. If I don’t charge and operate on tips, no permit is required. (no restrictions) I have the required insurance: liability, theft, etc. There doesn’t seem to be a market here. Do you know where I can hire on as an owner operator? I also have a small 20 ft. travel trailer and a pickup. (pedicab fits in back of pickup.) I am 62 yrs old and do long distance bicycle riding in the summer. I don’t smoke, drink, or take any medications. I have a clean criminal, driving, and credit history and I’m a retired Army Veteran. I’m divorced, own a house with land and have lived here since 1992. What advice can you give me? With all of that experience you have, you must have some ideals. Thank you for taking the time you took to read all of this.

    1. I forgot to mention that I have a Class A – Commercial Drivers License with the following endorsements: Passenger, School bus, Double/Triple Trailer, Tank Vehicle, Hazardous Materials. (requires an FBI background investigation). I also have a Texas Concealed Handgun License (requires an FBI background investigation). Texas Dept. of Public Safety says I don’t need Chauffeur’s Permit up here. Do I need it in Austin? I’ve had my CDL since 1994. I have driving experience with tractor/trailer rigs, prison, college, and school buses, trash compactor truck, heavy armored truck with hydraulic lift, oil field tanker vacuum truck. I’ve done over the road (all 48 states and Canada). I have an AAS in Corrections, AAS in Law Enforcement, and I am a graduate of Weatherford College Police Academy. Although I have never been a Police officer, I do have 17 yrs. experience in the Security field. I’d just like to finish my transportation career as a pedicab owner/operator with a reasonable amount of experience. Again, I want to thank you for your time.
