The airport taxi drivers are demanding authorities of the Ministry of Public Works and Transportation (MOPT) and the Traffic Police greater control in the area of the airport terminal.

Víctor Rodríguez, the union representative for the drivers, said “we are very affected by Uber” and criticizes the government allowing the ‘illegal’ service to continue.

“The airport is a more concentrated point, where one might think that it is easier to control, however, the opposite happens, Ubers arrive and take passengers as if nothing and in front of the traffic officials,” Rodríguez said.

Rodriguez added that the excuse of traffic officials is the lack of personnel.

“We are not going to let them keep telling us that there is a lack of personnel or that the ride apps are almost controlled with a bill, we ask that the Government stop the Uber operation, while its regulation is being defined,” concluded the union representative.
