CANCUN — Around 11 am Thursday Sept. 15, more than 500 taxi drivers gathered at kilometer 25 of the Fonatur roundabout, to demonstrate against the arrival of Uber service in Quintana Roo.
Taxi drivers carried banners with slogans against the company, like: “Uber is not wanted in Quintana Roo, respect the law!,” “Uber does not show its face, it’s a ghost!”, “Uber affects Quintana Roo!,” among others.
“At the rally, we will take to the side of the hotel zone road, 22 kilometers, not to affect the roads, there will be no street closures,” said Luis Mis González, spokesman for the Union of Taxi Drivers Andrés Quintana Roo. “The state government and Sintra are supporting us, we are willing to work with another company besides Uber, as long as the law is respected,”
He said that the march is calling for the rule of law that has been violated by Uber, the aim is to strengthen an effort that is taking place in the State Congress, and to deliver a list of demands in Chetumal.
Taxi drivers have assembled from the bridge toward the Cancun International Airport to Ventura Park, so there are several police troops to expedite vehicular traffic generated in the Glorieta Fonatur.
Given the uncertainty and confusion generated by the entry of Uber to Quintana Roo, unions of taxi drivers are looking for a solution to the issue, which according to them affects more than 35 thousand families in the municipality of Benito Juarez and about 90 thousand who depend on taxis statewide.
