“We call for this service to be provided in compliance with all the measures and guidelines already announced by the health authorities,” said Manuel Vega, president of CTP.

Vega stated that it was important and timely to make this decision in line with the greater revival of the productive and tourism service sectors.

The CTP makes it clear, in no case, the tourism units may limit capacity in terms of the number of people that each unit can transport, that is, with all seats occupied but without any standing passengers.

In no case, the vehicles authorized for tourism (units marked with ‘turismo’) may exceed the number of seats authorized by the Ministry of Health.
