Guadalajara Says Goodbye to Horse-Drawn Carriages

The traditional horse-drawn carriages are disappearing from the streets of Guadalajara as the municipal government follows up on a commitment to put a stop to animal abuse. The carriages that traverse the city’s historic center are being replaced with electric-powered replicas.

Mayor Enrique Alfaro Ramírez this week presented an example of the new electric carriages, which are to replace the fleet of 55 traditional carriages by this time next year.

The first 10 will arrive in Mexico’s second largest city during the next few months. A second batch of 22 carriages is expected to arrive in the first half of 2018, and the third and last batch of 23 in one year’s time.

The decision to replace horse-drawn carriages followed a year of discussions with local animal rights advocacy groups, said the mayor.

“We cannot continue to mistake the idea of tradition with animal abuse. That no longer has a place in Guadalajara; we’ve put a stop to it today,” said Alfaro.

The new carriages will operate on extended routes and with an updated set of regulations created by the municipal Secretariat of Mobility.
