The president of the MNT (Movimiento Nacional de Taxistas) Bersaín Miranda, urged talks with the heads of government and the SCT.
The National Taxi Driver Movement (Movimiento Nacional Taxista/MNT) pretends to remain in permanent encampment on Paseo de la Reforma if local and federal authorities do not heed their demands to regulate digital platforms of transportation applications such as Uber, Cabify and Didi.
Bersaín Miranda, president of the MNT, said in an interview that they no longer want mid-level officials to negotiate and they asked the federal government that the negotiators be the heads of the “Interior” and “Communications and Transportation”.
In Mexico City the negotiation, he said, should be directly with the head of government, Claudia Sheinbaum, since the talks with the Secretary of Mobility, Andres Lajous, have already been overcome.
Miranda indicated that they acknowledge that the apps are a reality and a major part of the service and that they will not cannot disappear… but, they demand that companies like Uber, Cabify and Didi be applied the same strict regulations that are used for taxi drivers.
“Currently app companies violate the laws of transportation by not having a concession and have vehicle fleets that grow without control and without technical studies” (SIC) Bersaín Miranda said.
Miranda apologized to the public for the inconvenience of their protest and asked President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador to raise awareness because the transnationals are causing the ruin of taxi drivers.
