About Electric Tuk Tuk Naperville
Tuk Tuk’s are a fast and fun way to get around downtown Naperville. Residents and visitors now have a great way to explore shopping, restaurants & bars, and historic sites. We have 4 vehicles in our fleet. Each Tuk Tuk is equipped with 6 seatbelts, heated seats, and acrylic covers to combat the elements. Our vehicles are 100% electric, quiet, and eco-friendly with a max speed of 25 MPH. They are DOT (Department of Transportation) certified and street legal.
Our Tuks: An Eco-Friendly Twist on a Unique Vehicle
Tuk Tuk’s originate in southeast Asia where they are mostly gas powered engines. They get their name from the sound the engine makes while moving “Tuk Tuk Tuk Tuk”. In India, where there are many on the streets, they are called auto rickshaws. Tuk Tuk’s are all over the world and are gaining popularity in the United States at a fast pace. Naperville is the first city in the Midwest to embrace Tuk Tuk’s as the “last mile ride” mode of transportation. We aim to provide a fun and safe way to get around town that relieves some of the parking stress and congestion downtown.
Meet the Tuk Tuk Naperville Team
Bill Hamik – Owner
Bill Hamik is a 25-year Naperville resident. He is very active in the community and loves to see the city grow and develop. Bill got the idea for Tuk Tuks in Naperville during a visit to Denver, CO. He saw the unique, fun, 100% electric vehicles and realized how great they would be for the downtown Naperville area.
Bill also owns SureRide (a Tuk Tuk Naperville Company). SureRide is also based on the last mile transit concept with a focus on 14-passenger vans, SUVs, and 4 door sedans.
Chris Parker – Manager

John Haake – Assistant Manager
Jon Haake was born and raised in Naperville. Jon has been a Lead driver and Assistant Manager for years. His personality can’t be beat. Jon will always be driving with a different hat on.
Our Tuk Tuk drivers are hired for their personalities and ability to create experiences for their riders. All drivers are local to Naperville and most have grown up here so their knowledge of the area and streets can’t be beat by any other ride service. They pride themselves on creating an experience for you and your family instead of just showing up to drive like a robot. Unless that is what you prefer, of course!
