Coventry’s plans to introduce tuk tuks and pedicabs to the city, in time for the City of Culture in 2021, has been halted.

Coventry City Council has since revealed that, whilst there was earlier interest, no applications have been received from anyone wanting to operate the service.

A spokesperson for Coventry City Council said: “The decision we made was to license tuk tuks and pedicabs.

“To date we have had no applications from operators of these vehicles.

"To be clear the City Council are the licensing authority not taxi or Tuc Tuc operator”.
