STREET TALK! (Tonight)

The New Amsterdam Project: Human powered cargo trikes; paving the way 
for sustainable delivery services
Tue. Apr. 29, 7 - 8:30 pm
by Andrew Brown, founder and CEO of the New Amsterdam Project

@ LivableStreets office space, 100 Sidney Street, Central Square, 
Cambridge [ map... ]

free and open to the public, donation suggested, beer/sodas provided 
compliments of Harpoon Brewery!

We invite you to attend, learn & be inspired by the recently launched, 
Cambridge-based bicycle delivery service, the New Amsterdam Project 
(NAP). NAP provides human-powered pick-up and delivery services for 
local businesses, organizations and universities. Founder and CEO, 
Andrew Brown will be discussing the inspiration behind the cargo-trike 
fleet and how the company will transform the Boston metro area.

When it comes to urban delivery services, the New Amsterdam Project's 
fleet of human-powered trikes is quickly becoming a strong competitor to 
conventional vans and trucks. Thanks to their compact design, these 
cargo vehicles --which accommodate up to 600 lbs.-- can easily navigate 
urban congestion and require a fraction of the space otherwise needed 
for parking/ delivery by a car, van or truck. And, as a zero-emissions 
transportation service; the NAP is able to offer clients and their 
communities an environmentally sound alternative for their 
transportation needs. Their clients include: Boston Organics, Taza 
Chocolate, Petsi Pies, and many others.

The New Amsterdam project was recently featured in a Christian Science 
monitor article: "Cargo trikes nudge delivery trucks in Cambridge, 
Mass.; A Cambridge, Mass., delivery company is using industrial 
tricycles to deliver goods in efforts to curb global emissions." [ full
