UBER: Costa del Sol rally

COSTA del Sol taxi drivers are demanding stricter regulations on ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Cabify.

They want local authorities to crackdown on the licensed driver platforms, which have transformed the way people get around on the coast.

The drivers claim the legal ratio of one licenced driver vehicle for every 30 taxis has been breached.

They are also calling on local police forces to assign agents to conduct surveillance of vehicles operating for Uber and Cabify to ensure that they do not park in highly congested areas, including train stations and airports.

The coexistence between traditional taxis and licensed driver vehicles for mobile platforms has been hotly debated following the introduction of Uber to the Costa del Sol region this June.
