From Anosibe to Andohatapenaka, through neighborhoods of Andavamamba and Isotry, this means of transport to the former is the daily lives of many people in the Malagasy capital.
 
Goods transported on the roof of the carriage and passengers sitting in the front in a summary comfort are now part of the landscape of Tananarive.
 
The direction of urban movement (DDU) to the urban municipality of Tananarive (CUA) tolerates the use of carriages on the road network.

These vehicles towed by horses are nevertheless subject to certain rules as a movement permitted between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. that the vast majority of carriages do not respect.
 
Moreover, downtown and the high part of the city of Tananarive are strictly prohibited, according to the newspaper L'Express of Madagascar.
