In its not motorized version, the driver is installed with before on a Bicyclette whose stays and aft wheel are replaced by a frame with a pair of side wheels. It controls the machine with the handlebar and the brakes, and possibly has levers of shifting of speed. It also provides driving energy while operating the pedals; a chain ensures the transmission between the pedals and the axis of the aft wheels on the same principle as for a bicycle.
The back takes again the design of a Pousse-pousse, with a seat or a bench posed on the frame. This part can be covered with a hood or a rigid roof to protect the passengers from the bad weather.
In its motorized version, the front part is built starting from a motor bike or of a Scooter; the engine is one 2-time in general. In practice, the construction of these machines is now the specific design object and their production is industrialized. The majority of the autorickshaws are equipped with a body without doors with Pare-brise, thus protecting the driver in addition to the passengers.
At the origin of the retreat of the use of the Reef tackle S, this means of transport is very much used in all the Asia of south-east, and in particular in India (where it is called rather rickshaw ) and in Malaysia (where it is called rather trishaw ) and in the adjoining countries.

Even when the machine does not belong to them, he generally work on their account or gather in companies according to the same principle as the companies of automobile taxis.
However, of the companies start to invest on the market of the family autorickshaw or company, proposing a range of machines increasingly close to the Automobile and small Fourgons of delivery in their philosophy of use.
With Kolkata, there manually exist also drawn rickshaws by the rickshaws-wallahs. This means of transport is the object of polemical sharp and profits from a rigorous regulation.
