What is Metro Pedal Power?
Metro Pedal Power was formed in 2008 with the mission of replacing gasoline driven vans and trucks with pedal-powered vehicles for last mile freight in dense urban areas, in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, combat congestion, and enhance the livability and resilience of our cities. Our service is economical, environmentally-friendly, values-driven, and it’s fun. We have three main areas of business:
- Local Farm Wholesale Distribution B2B – sales and distribution of local produce to chefs and small retail outlets around the Boston area.
- Local Food and Farm CSA delivery, B2C – a home delivery solution for local farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), local food aggregators, and artisan food producers.
- Hauling services – SSO pickups (Source-Separated Organics) from homes in Somerville and Cambridge, City of Cambridge contract servicing Public Area Recycling Bins, and food-rescue operations.
Metro Pedal Power is a team of dedicated individuals doing what we love – ride on!
We are part of the movement to enhance the health and well being of our communities, improve the livability of our cities, and relieve urban congestion and pollution. Our burly vehicles and heroic riders work in all weather carrying loads up to 500 lbs.
The goal of the organization is to provide an attractive and efficient service that is cost-effective for the customer, prosperous for us as individuals, and that contributes to the well-being of the community at large.
