ENTREPRENEURS in Marbella have seen their van set fire to as a result of the town’s raging taxi war.
The five young people set up a company called Mas Que Ocio (MQOcio), to transport people all over Marbella for a yearly subscription fee of 120.
An app is used by members to request a minivan to take them to their destination, which can be anywhere in the town.
But taxi drivers, who are already up in arms about car-pooling apps such as BlaBlaCar, see the company as competition.
Police are currently investigating four taxis which were allegedly seen in the vicinity of the van in the days leading up to the attack.
MQOcio will have to temporarily lay off four people until the van is repaired.
