The City of Guadalajara presented this Wednesday, the prototype of the calendaring power to replace the traditional ones that are pulled by horses that circulate through the city.
The municipal president, Enrique Alfaro, noted that it is an innovative model of tourist transport, which can be recharged at any electrical source of 110 volts.
“In this city, the second largest city of Mexico, may not have draught animals, there are no conditions or safety, or any type for that to keep working, we are pleased to be able to present a way to preserve our traditions,” he said.
In total will be replaced 55 calenders by traditional electric utilities, which will have a cost of half a million pesos each.
The calenders traditional will be out of circulation within a year or until the vehicle fleet of the electrical is complete, reported the director of Animal Protection of Guadalajara, Merilyn Gomez Wells.
He added that for December, you will be able to see circulation in the city the first 10 calenders electrical.
“We intend to be in a period of approximately a year, the first stage is that in December are 10 and subsequently 22 more”, he said.
These new vehicles appear to be similar to the calenders traditional, but they work with lithium batteries.
The 55 calendaring power will be delivered by the Municipality on lease for 99 years to the calandrieros for your operation.
With respect to the horses that will be removed from the streets, he explained that these are the will of their owners, or may be donated to any association for the protection of animals.
To which may be circulated by the city, the calendaring power must have special permissions and even have to have plates, pointed out the secretary of Mobility, Servando Sepulveda, since you will provide a tourist service. The permit will be similar to the Tapatio Tour.
