Folks enjoying their weekend in Downtown Knoxville now have a new way to get around. Friday was the soft launch for a new rickshaw business.
A rickshaw, also called a pedicab, is a bike with one wheel in the front and two in the back designed to carry passengers.
Back in July, the city council voted to allow them to be used as a vehicle for hire.
The creator of Downtown Rickshaw says a visit from her parents made her think of the idea.
