Free pedapod rides in Sydney!

Filed under: bike pics, Events, General, New Product — schmadzie @ 2:29 pm

Free pedapod passenger rides in the Sydney CBD from 26th July to 1st August between 10am and 4pm brought to you by Jetstar.

So show your support for Sydney’s pedal-powered transport option by taking a free ride today.

As part of Jetstar’s launch of cheap flights to Asia, Jetstar has sponsored pedapod in Sydney for 1 week to offer free passenger service rides in the CBD. This is a “hail and ride” service, just like a taxi. You can use the service to get between city offices, to get between shops and public transport, to get between entertainment areas and public transport hubs, or just to enjoy a ride for the experience.

Jordan Baker reported in the Sydney Morning Herald today that,

The discount airline’s website yesterday buckled under the demand for $169 one-way flights to Bali – including taxes. Return trips to Vietnam were selling for $398, and one-way flights to Osaka for $249….Everyday, all-inclusive, one-way fares range from $409 for Bali, $489 for Ho Chi Minh City and $549 for Osaka.

…Each passenger receives a bottle of water on boarding, and a water cooler is onboard for refills.

  1. Thankyou so much for the link.
    Our pedapod pilots have been very busy pedalling people around the city, and with the weather forecast for a lovely sunny weekend, we expect to be pedalled off our feet!
    The free CBD rides last until Tuesday 1/8/06, after that, pedapod will be a pay-to-use service, unless we find another lovely spoonsor to come onboard to offer more free rides.
