Starting May 1st heavy-duty pink cargo trikes could be a regular sight in the Burrard Bridge bike lane.
Shift Delivery Co-op is a new zero-emissions delivery service based in downtown Vancouver that wants to replace conventional delivery trucks by transporting loads of up to 600 lbs by bike lane.
Run by five post-secondary students in their 20s plan, Shift plans to haul a diverse range of products including coffee, catering, office supplies, clothing, moving supplies, beverages, and produce.
Shift Delivery is applying for a business license from the city and wants to ensure it can use the city’s separated bike lanes.
Shift Delivery is following the lead of Portland’s two-year-old B-Line cargo tricycle delivery service.
