Since our inception in late summer 2014, 10 Toes Tours has made sustainable transportation in Durham a reality, while providing an enjoyable experience to all of our patrons. Whether it is a ride to dinner, a nighttime establishment, a friend’s apartment or just to grab a bite to eat, a ride with 10 Toes Tours Pedicabs is the right decision. We also provide transportation for groups, wedding parties, sporting events, and parking lots.
We specialize in awesome historic tours of downtown Durham. As a company, our mission is threefold: provide fun transportation throughout the downtown area for visitors and residents of Durham, deter impaired driving, and operate a new sustainable business in Durham. 10 Toes Tours Pedicabs are managed by “Transportainment Ambassadors” - well trained, well spoken, outgoing individuals who will undoubtedly leave you with a good impression. 10 Toes Tours Pedicab Transportainment Ambassadors are carefully screened and trained in foot-delivered transportation rules, regulations and safety protocols. We take pride in having the most outgoing, well-mannered and awesome drivers of any Pedicab business.
Pedicab rides are a relaxing, romantic, and nostalgic form of transportation enjoyed safely by people of all ages and walks of life. We call it “transportainment” - a marriage between” transportation” and “entertainment”. How much does this cost? We go by the “Trips for Tips” motto at 10 Toes Tours, so just explain to your driver where you need to go and then tip your driver when you arrive at your destination. We also feature rolling advertising promotions for area businesses. See our advertising page for more information. Our goal is to get you to your destination safely while showcasing beautiful downtown Durham.

How does it work?
It's simple. We train drivers to operate the pedicab safely and you transport people from place to place at events. Our drivers are independent contractors and operate for tips. They pay a percentage of those tips as lease for the bike. We supply the pedicab, maintenance, insurance, and handle all of the details that enable us to operate. They simply show up, ride responsibly, and have fun.
What are the requirements?
Due to insurance requirements, drivers must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid driver's license. They also are required to sign an independent contractor's agreement. Customer service background is preferred, as their ability to work with the public is extremely important. Athletic ability and cycling experience are a plus, but are not a requirement.
What are the hours?
As an independent contractor, they set your own schedule. Opportunities are available during the daytime, evenings, and weekends. Shifts are often between 5 and 12 hours, depending on the event. We request that only those able to seriously manage themselves and their commitments apply for opportunities with us. Priority is given to drivers who work consistently and demonstrate an ability to honor their commitments.
All 10 Toes Tours Ambassadors go through 8 hours of training which include: vehicle operations, driver safety, Durham history, and tactical conversation.
