Shock Shuttle Hits Main Street

Elyse Richman, owner of Shock, says her business is going green.

Driving down Main Street this summer, some may have noticed a new addition — a pedicab, freshly painted in aqua and white. Curious, Patch checked it out. 

Turns out the pedicab belongs to  owner Elyse Richman. 

"Shock is going green this summer," said Richman, who said she's been riding the pedicab to and from work each day.

Richman said she found the pedicab though a man selling an ice cream truck on e-bay

"We painted it, re-did the seat and now it's the new Shock mobile," said Richman.

Aside from using it as transportation to and from work, Richman says her son Max, give rides to customers with children at no charge.

"He takes them from Shock to Baby Shock or to Shock Ice Cream," said Richman.

Richman says she would love to see a pedicab service in Westhampton Beach, similar to a service that was launched in Village of Patchogue last summer, where residents and vacationers can hitch a ride to shops and to the beach.

"It may be hard to get over the bridge to the beach and back, but it would be a fun experience," said Richman.
