The Business Coordinating Council (CCE) urged the authorities to adopt measures necessary to regularize the Uber service in Merida, and thereby avoid a repeat of this week’s violent confrontations that could affect Yucatan’s image of security and tranquility.
CCE president Juan Jose Abraham Daguer said that such events cause a negative image for the city and the state, so he urged authorities to call for the parties concerned to dialogue.
“It is desirable that it never comes to violence, we need the authorities to act in advance and prevent these clashes that affect society,” he said.
Daguer, also director of the Canacome, also said authorities must find some way to regularize Uber, because this is a problem that needs to be solved as soon as possible to avoid further clashes.
“Here it is desirable that both parties are met and heard from, to resolve this problem, because nobody wins the confrontation, the image of the state’s security is lost,” he said.
For his part, Yucatan’s Secretary of Tourism, Saúl Ancona Salazar, said events between taxi drivers and Uber drivers at Merida International Airport Wednesday May 25 is an unfortunate issue for society.
“A destination that we have promoted as peaceful and quiet, where it fun to come to pass family time, any of these situations damages this image,” he said.
Regarding the warning taxi drivers of United Front of Taxi Workers (FUTV) to lash out at the Uber operating in the hotel zone of the city, Ancona Salazar said that the authorities of Transport and the Ministry of Government took action to unlock this conflict so it does not escalate.
The tourism official said yesterday no one missed his flight due to the clashes that occurred in the streets around the airport in the city of Merida.
