Who We Are
We get what you need, to you. We are Cincinnati’s bike courier service, serving the entire downtown area and based in Over-the-Rhine. Our focus is providing local businesses and residents with a fast, affordable delivery option.
We are comprised of experienced, dedicated cyclists who love what they do, and we are rider-owned and operated. Because of this we are heavily invested in the quality of the work we do for our clients and customers.
Bikes are faster and more efficient than cars in the city. They’re better for the environment. But mostly, they’re awesome and we enjoy riding them.
53T Courier is a proud member of Couriers United.
Order direct from any of our restaurant clients, listed at the top of the page.
Zone 1 - $3.00
Zone 2 - $4.00
Unsealed Beverage Fee - $1.00 (up to 4 drinks)*
If you are interested in having food delivered from a restaurant that is not one of our clients, please use our order request form. All orders from non-client restaurants will be treated as a Rush (1 hr / $11) delivery.
We specialize in food delivery, but we can accommodate almost any cargo that needs to get from A to B. From documents and packages to retail delivery, 53T is your choice for fast, affordable, and efficient bike messenger service in downtown Cincinnati.

How do I place a food order with you guys?
You have a few different options. If you want to order from one of our clients listed at the top of the page, all you have to do is click on their icon. Depending on the restaurant, you can order by phone, app, or online.
What if I want something from another restaurant?
For the price of our Rush (1-hr.) Parcel rates ($11), we’ll pick up food from pretty much any other restaurant in the downtown/OTR area. Just place your order with the restaurant and pay over the phone, then contact us via our Non-Client Food Delivery order form at 53Tcourier.com/rateform.
What about parcel service?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 513-549-7053, to set up an account with us!
How much are you able to carry?
Quite a lot! We regularly do $150+ catering deliveries for our restaurant clients and non-clients alike. For our larger orders we use a Bullitt cargo bike to haul stuff around, so you can rest assured that we have the capabilities to carry your order whether it be $25 or $450 (oh yeah, we’ve done that).
Are you open on Sundays / holidays?
As of right now we are not open on Sundays. We’ll get there eventually but for now we operate Monday - Friday, 9AM - 9PM & Saturday 11AM - 11PM. As for holidays, if the restaurant is open, we deliver!
How do I change / cancel an order?
If you already placed your order with a client restaurant contact them ASAP to cancel or change the order. If the order is cancelled after we pick it up you will be refunded all but the delivery fee. If the order is from a non-client restaurant contact the restaurant to change / cancel the order and give us a call to let us know the order is cancelled.
What can't you deliver?
Dogs. I’m pretty sure we can’t deliver dogs. Otherwise we’re up for pretty much everything! If you have any questions just email us or give us a call.
How do you say your name?
Fifty-Three-Tee Courier. Not five-three-T, and not five-one-three. 53T stands for the number of teeth (hence the T) on a typical road bike’s “big” chainring– it’s the fast gear. Get it?
For food delivery, please order direct from our restaurant clients listed at the top of the page.
