Tourist taxis to block Uber ‘with bravery’
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic’s tourist taxi association (CODOTATUR) on Tuesday threatened an “unprecedented protest” in the transport, which they affirm could lead to a nationwide strike to halt Uber´s fledgling operation.
In a gathering in a restaurant in the capital dozens of taxi drivers stated their support for domestic taxi companies operating with web platforms.
CODOTATUR president Santiago Zamora said they are united in their fight against Uber because they won’t allow a company to operate irresponsibly, noting that Uber has been rejected in Colombia, Germany, France, Mexico, Holland and even in some US cities.
He said Uber´s presence harms the environment of peace and harmony, and they’ll press the Presidency to bar the new service, but if that fails, will confront it “with bravery.”
