So far there are five “Taxi Rosa” units of the Taxi Drivers Association operating in Merida….
MERIDA — The Taxi Drivers Association (Frente Único de Trabajadores del Volante, FUTV, in Spanish) has stopped its offensive against the Uber platform, and FUTV general secretary Héctor Fernández Zapata dismissed new actions against the controversial ride service to encourage its exit from the state.
However the FUTV is betting on its new proposal for a “Taxi Rosa” service provided by women and for women.
To date the Yucatán State Transportation Directorate reports the arrest of more than 800 Uber units. Fernández Zapata said: “The measure we have at the moment is to improve us on our own and we will wait for the authority to do the same”.
He also ruled out new work stoppages in the taxi service like the one made a few months ago against Uber.
Fernández Zapata continued: “The measures we have taken from the beginning are in order to improve our services, just like implementing the new pink taxi service. We also want to start using cars to support people with disabilities, and we have renewed more than 300 units that are already circulating in the streets of the city. We will soon launch our improved platform, and the FUTV continues in a process of renovation. The Uber platform is a matter of authority, they are illegal and here the authority will have to do their thing.”
