Pedicabs were introduced to Macao in 1948 and soon outnumbered the existing hand-pulled rickshaws as means to carry passengers around the city. At the peak of the pedicab’s golden era, more than 700 such tricycles travelled daily around Macao’s streets. When the Macao Pedicab Drivers’ Union was founded in 1952, it had a membership of more than 1,000 people. Pedicabs are no longer used for day-to-day transportation; some remain in operation, having become popular among visitors for tours of the city.
