Praia, Sep 17 (Inforpress) – The president of the Taxi Drivers Association of Praia, Adriano Monteiro, said today that the implementation of the ‘Taxi Praia’ platform “has no advantage” for Praia residents.
In a statement to Inforpress, Adriano Monteiro explained that the application implemented by the City Hall of Praia is in the “experimental phase” and its use is optional, so taxi drivers “will not be required to use it”.
For Monteiro, “it does not make sense” to use the home call application, since “this service is paid”, while the illegal taxi are exempt from this charge.
According to him, at this time, about 300 cars circulate in the capital make illegal freight, publicly, “competing with taxis”. It also said that on the other hand, only eight taxis are making use of the “Taxi Praia” app.
