A new taxi company in Mérida is catering to animal lovers.

Pet Móvil, is offering rides around the city in modified vehicles that allow both pets and their owners to travel in comfort. 

The vehicles can be used to transport several kinds of animals, but were designed with dogs in mind. 

These pet-friendly taxis are air-conditioned and feature a mattress in the back cabin, as well as toys for animals to play with. 

The company’s vehicles are large enough to fit three human passengers and up to four large dogs.

The service is available daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., but emergency transfers are available 24 hours for an extra fee. 

Bookings can be made through Pet Móvil’s Facebook page or at 999-308-4634 and 962-286-3852.
