What kind of timer do I need?
Under the Final Rule, timers must comply with Handbook 44 and Special Publication 960-12 of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and be inspected and sealed by DCA.
You cannot use a cell phone as a timer.
If you have a currently approved timer that does not comply with the Final Rule, you will have until your renewal inspection in fall 2013 to update your timer.
If I currently don't have a DCA-approved and sealed timer, how can I get mine inspected and sealed?
Call 311 or email RequestInspection@dca.nyc.gov to schedule a pedicab timer inspection. The fee is $10 per timer inspection.
Where can I find sign templates and the Pedicab Information Card?
Editable Templates include:
Pedicab Complaint Sign
The Final Rule that took effect on July 12, 2013 increases the minimum size of the letters and numbers on the required pedicab complaint sign to one-half of an inch high. DCA created a new template that complies with the Rule. You must post the updated sign in every pedicab in your fleet.
Pedicab Information Card
Pedicab Rate Sign (for both sides of the exterior of the pedicab)
Pedicab Rate Sign (for rear of bicycle seat)
