Cancun, Q.R. — Taxi drivers from Cancun continued to block roadways and public entrances on Tuesday May 30, in protest of the newly passed mobility law.
The new law, which will make way for digital transportation platforms such as Uber, was unanimously passed by the state Monday morning. Since then, unionized taxi drivers across the state continued to protest by blocking public highways and roadways, creating chaos and even disrupting flights at the Cancun airport.
President of the Mexican Association of Travel Agencies in Quintana Roo, Sergio González Rubiera, acknowledged that the blockages did affect the transfers of many tourists. Tourists traveling through places like Playa del Carmen took nearly two additional hours to reach the airport, delaying the arrival and departure of tourists from hotels in Riviera Maya.
The delays were the result of the nearly 900 taxi drivers who concentrated their efforts on the entrance to the Cancun International Airport and the Cancun Hotel Zone at the height of the roundabout of the National Fund for Tourism Promotion.
However, the new mobility law has been welcome by many. The Caribbean Business Coordinating Council has applauded the approval of the mobility law, congratulating deputies of the Legislature for their courage in pushing the law forward. They were also credited with calling on the government to stop the blockades of taxi drivers.
In a press conference, González Rubiera announced the position of the business organization, noting that the previous law was 30 years old and obsolete.
