Ottawa Rickshaws was founded in 2005, and has grown to become a staple of Ottawa’s tourism and nightlife scene.  We provide historical downtown tours of Ottawa, group events and scavenger hunts, and all-in-all just a fun way to get around Ottawa! Our runners work hard year round in the Byward Market, on Elgin St., Parliament Hill, and Major’s Hill Park to provide tourists and residents an unforgettable experience of Ottawa.

Ottawa Rickshaws is also a popular mode of transportation at busy events such as the Canada Day festivities and the Ottawa Bluesfest.

Our Team

Ottawa Rickshaws is made up of a team of carefully selected employees who each display a positive and energetic attitude, a healthy lifestyle, and a commitment to growing Ottawa as a community.

The individuality of each runner has helped to make our team fundamental to Ottawa’s tourism and entertainment industries over the years.
