Business leaders urged the authorities to regulate this transport service given the bad reputation that taxi drivers have earned

Cancun.- Despite the fact that the Third Collegiate Court of the Twenty-seventh Circuit ruled out this Wednesday discussing the entry of Uber to Quintana Roo, business leaders in Cancun urged the authorities to regulate this transport service given the bad reputation that taxi drivers have earned .

Taxi drivers must improve their service

Julio Villarreal Zapata, president of Canirac Cancun, said that the entry of mobility platforms expands transportation options, and forces the taxi drivers to improve their service, just as the restaurant sector did before the arrival of restaurants that only sell online.

“Why should taxi drivers be the only ones who don’t have that kind of competition,” said the businessman, adding that hoteliers have similar competition with vacation rental platforms.

Uber entry to the state is required

Another who spoke about it was Miriam Cortés Franco, president of Acluvaq, who said that Uber’s entry into the state is necessary, especially due to the insecurity that has occurred within the same taxi units.

“There are many great taxi drivers, they provide wonderful service and are extraordinary people, but the union has allowed the entry of bandits that they have not been able to contain, and they leave us no other option than to demand a private service,” she declared.

Options for the tourist

For his part, Eduardo Martínez, from the CCE del Caribe, said that “one more competitor to the market with a platform, Uber or any other is very good, it allows tourists the option to find better services and better rates”.

Finally, Tony Chaves, president of the Rivera Maya Hotel Association, mentioned that the entry of the taxi platforms are imminent, especially since in other destinations that are also tourism leaders, it is something that occurs normally and works without setbacks.
