Many colleges throughout the United States have decided to not only to strengthen their relationships with their communities -but also reduce their global footprints. We have seen many universities utilize their land for organic gardens (which yield goods for food banks, shelters and more), eliminate their dependence on coal burning and even cutting back the number of vehicles on campus by implementing pedicabs and pedal trucks.
Here at Main Street, we were delighted when UC Davis in California requested pedal trucks to utilize in their grounds/landscaping tasks. By implementing these pedal trucks, the staff is able to have their resources more readily-available. They have been able to spend less time loading up trucks, finding parking, driving around and having to carry their tools to their locations. Now, workers can pedal right up to where they are working and start doing what they need to immediately. Not only has this increased productivity -it has also helped optimize staff member health and keeps more vehicles off the road. There is no need to haul around extra unused space or waste gas, which ends up being very ergonomic for the university.
Several other colleges have followed suit and have even traded their student transportation shuttles for pedicabs. We hope to see more campuses utilizing pedicabs and pedal trucks in the near future.
