Fairly new to Nice, these eco-friendly ‘taxis’ run on pedal-power …but don’t feel too bad as you glide along in the shade while your driver pumps away: these modern bikes are electric, so when the going gets tough, the battery gets going!
They usually gather at Place Massena, but you can also find them at Nice Etoile, Place Magenta, or on the Promenade near the Casino Ruhl. Otherwise just flag one down or call and reserve; they’re out and about until 7pm, and until 9pm in July and August.
(For a short hop for one person, they charge less than a regular taxi, which charges 3€ to start, and then 1.80€/km, and would usually balk at a short hop, anyway.)
…And, for just 1.50€ and 15 minutes notice, they will come and pick you up… just call 04 93 81 76 15.
Cyclopolitain also offers a relaxed way to roll by the sights of Nice: a narrated 30-minute city tour (English available) is 15€ for one person and 12.50€ for two passengers.
