AROUND 400 taxi drivers carried out a protest on Tuesday (June 2) around the area of Platja de Palma to request the legal regularisation of rickshaws known as ‘bici-taxis.’
The demonstration, which began in the Son Oms industrial site, developed without incidents and was organised by the Balearic Islands Transport Federation (FEBT-CAEB), joined by the Self-Employed Taxi Drivers and Platja de Palma Radio Taxi groups.
The protest finished at the Local Police station in Plata de Palma, where president of FEBT-CAEB, Toni Bauza, delivered a document explaining their demands, as authorised taxi drivers denounced that rickshaws were carrying out transport services without necessary permits.
“These vehicles don’t offer any guarantee to the user in terms of pricing and safety and represent unfair competition for taxi drivers, who are in fact complying with strict legal norms established by Palma Council,” said one of the representatives.
