City Council Approves Trolley & Pedicab Businesses For Greenville

One city in the east is now a hub for all types of transportation services.

Greenville City Council gave the go ahead Thursday night on new transportation services they say will enhance the community.

The Jolly Trolley along with rickshaws will be common sights in Greenville. The past few months the business have been trying to get rolling and that was finalized Thursday night at the city council meeting. For East Carolian pedicab owner Matthew White its a service that doesn't compete with taxis.

"We stay in the university area. Our main clientele is students. That's who we appeal to. Most of the people we appeal to weren't going to take a taxi cab in the first place."

Both new companies are up and operating after Thursday's meeting. This was their last step in getting their franchises approved by the city.
