Why can’t Uber provide service at the Merida airport despite the lack of taxi cabs?

Passengers arriving at the Merida airport on the early bird flight have complained recently about the lack of cabs, so they have to walk more than a kilometer to get to the avenue, and the Uber service is prohibited, but for what reason?

(Por Esto!).- A few days ago, members of the National Guard detained two cab vehicles of the Uber platform, whose drivers were caught providing their services in the vicinity of the air terminal.

As it is considered a federal zone, the transportation service cars operate under a permit which they have to pay for. As a result, neither the state nor the municipal police can act, only federal elements.

The permit is granted by the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT) and the measure is applied in most of the airports, including Mexico City.

The measure has caused discomfort among the people, since many times the cost of the service offered by the site’s cabs is higher than that of an Uber or other digital platform operating in the entity.

Despite the prohibition, through the Uber page the service is offered, to get to the terminal area or in its case to leave it.

“Travel to and from Merida Airport with the Uber app. Instead of waiting for the MID bus or a cab, you can request a ride directly on the app and be on your way,” it reads.
