Who regulates cab drivers
The Governing Board of the Madrid City Council today approved a draft amendment to the Taxi Regulatory Ordinance, which now includes some of the allegations that had been submitted by the Gremial Association and the Professional Federation, two of the most important associations in this sector.
The text, approved with the votes of the PP, PSOE and IU have voted against, includes that the maximum daily time that a cab can circulate is 16 hours, except for those licenses that have at least two employees working, in which case the day may be extended to 18 hours.
For their part, the opposition parties do not welcome these changes. In fact, the socialist councilman Manuel García Hierro believes that “first and second category licenses will be created”, and has also criticized the fact that an agreement has not been reached with all the associations of the sector and that nothing has been done before to solve the crisis that the cab sector is going through.
The councilman of IU has raised that “goes in the opposite direction that is intended with this regularization, since what would be done plainly and simply is to proceed to the total deregulation of the sector, introducing the possibility that a cab can operate continuously for 24 hours”.
