On May 28 the State Congress approved the Mobility Law, that allows the return of digital transport platforms such as Uber to the city of Cancun.
Nevertheless, they will have several limitations such as the need to obtain a permit and it could be only operated by the owner of the car and one additional operator.
Uber operators will be also asked for a series of security requirements, such as geolocation device and a list of all the other operators.
More than 2,000 operators of the Lazaro Cardenas del Rio de Playa del Carmen union participated in a demonstration against the Mobility Law as, they say, it affects the public transport service. They have blocked 3 points on the federal highway. The main one in the northern zone near to the Hotel Mayakoba, the second on the elevated bridge at the junction with the avenue 28 de Julio and one more outside the trade facilities in the area at the southern exit of the city.
The protesters argue that this new law allows private companies to propose their own transportation systems which would significantly reduce the service they provide in theme parks and touristic centers, hence they took these extreme measures to achieve a dialogue with local authorities.
The operators of Playa del Carmen, in solidarity with the rest of the unions of the state, blocked one the main junctions of the Federal Highway 307.
The Mobility Law approved on May 28 by the State Congress places the people of Quintana Roo as the priority.
Mobility is recognized as a human right and fundamental for the effective movement of people.
It orders the components related to mobility, transport, roads and urban signage.
It establishes the hierarchy of mobility: first pedestrians, then cyclists, then public transport and private transport.
The Mobility Institute is created as a decentralized public body.
The Integrated Public Transport System is created to regulate:
1. The infrastructure for mobility and its use.
2. The classification of transport and its rates.
3. The concessions and the permits.
4. The Massive Public Transport System.
5. The service through digital platforms.
6. Parking lots, stations and terminals.
7. Licenses and driving permits.
8. The Public Transportation Registry.
The Integrated Public Transport System covers the transport service contracted through digital platforms such as UBER, the public service and the private service.
Information desks will be available for transport organizations and society in general to know the scope and content of the Law in favor of the people.
