A Pedicab Business License is required for any business that owns, leases, or otherwise controls a pedicab or pedicabs and operates or authorizes the operation of one or more pedicabs for hire to passengers within the City of New York.

Please note: Pedicabs CANNOT operate in New York City without a DCA-issued pedicab registration plate. By law, the City can only issue new pedicab registration plates when the number of registered pedicabs falls below 840. You should submit this application if:

- A licensed pedicab business has agreed to transfer a pedicab registration plate to you and you are a new business or a licensed pedicab business with fewer than 30 registered pedicabs.
- There is a Pedicab Registration Plate Lottery, and you receive an offer to be issued a pedicab registration plate after applying for the lottery.
