Goldies Ponies has been around for a few years, offering pedi cab rides for alternatively-abled burners. I’ve met a lot of other pedi cab drivers out there also gifting rides, so CHARIOT PROJECT was formed to offer a meeting spot and dispatch location.
In 2018 we had 5 pedi cabs, a few dispatch volunteers and 5 trailer chariots. We are building a whole new fleet of trailer chariots as they are very popular. Our camp is capped at about 12 people. Priority spots are given to core members that bring their own pedi cabs and/or are returning chariot checkout volunteers.
CHARIOT PROJECT is a pedi cab/rickshaw/chariot theme camp and shade lounge. Taxi Drivers that bring their own rigs decide their schedule, we do not have shifts or make people work if they are a taxi driver.
All campers at CHARIOT PROJECT are passionate about bikes, gifting rides and helping the community with transportation.
Campers can contribute in many ways. Most of which being:
a. Bring your own pedi cab, side car or golf cart taxi (DMV approved)
b. Volunteer running dispatch, hours are Mon-Sat 10am – 2pm, we ask for two shifts from non taxi drivers
- While on shift you can drink, smoke, play music, lay on a cot, whatever. So long as you are there to help checkout the chariots. I don't really think it's a hard job, we party, and help the community at the same time.
c. All campers contribute to set up or tear down as needed.
2019 Placement TBD - in past years it's been at 9:00 sector
CHARIOT PROJECT builds starting Saturday (pre-gate) and continues into Sunday. And we are open for business Monday morning. We are open through Man burn, and begin tear down the Sunday morning of Temple Burn.
All shade, rental stable, bike racks, intake desks, signage and pedi cabs should be put together and functioning by Sunday evening of gate open, and torn down/mooped by Sunday of temple burn.
Goldie herself covers most of the expenses of camp infrastructure, co-captains help too. Dues are low - this reimburses a small portion of infrastructure, storage fees and grey water.
Camp culture and set up?
We are small camp, of about 12 people.
