Pedicab Service Now Available on Fire Island
A new pedicab service has launched on Fire Island, taking passengers from Robert Moses State Park, past the Fire Island Lighthouse to Kismet. The owner of Fire Island Pedicab, Justin Galbraith, operates a bicycle pedicab with power assist between the two places to fill a void he believes has been needed for some time.
For $5 a person per way on the scenic Burma Road, Galbraith will take Fire Island visitors from Robert Moses State Park Field 5 to the Fire Island Lighthouse, or to just before the border of Kismet for $10. For kids under 12 years old, it’s $3 to the Lighthouse and a $6 ride to Kismet.
“As it is the first of its kind, the rickshaw service is a pilot program, and we will continue to monitor and evaluate as time progresses,” Jason Pristupa, chief of administration for the Fire Island National Seashore, told Newsday.
For Fire Island visitors interested in the new Fire Island Pedicab service, Gailbraith and one other driver offers rides from 9am-dusk each Friday, Saturday and Sunday through October 15. Riders can show up during business hours, make a reservation through calling, texting or on their website.
