The pedicab is a three-wheeled, human-powered mechanical vehicle. It is made up of a bicycle attached to a sidecar that can seat up to two people. These may come with a roof for both the driver and the passengers, or none. It can seat at most four people.
The pedicab is a mixture the words ‘pedal,’ referring to how the bike is powered, and ‘cab,’ referring to the sidecar that ferries people. It is also called the padyak or sikad, the equivalent of the phrase ‘to pedal’ in Tagalog and Bisaya. Another name is traysikad in Bisaya, referring to the number of its wheels.
