Cancun City Council requests taxi drivers involved in bus driver threats be reprimanded

Cancun, Q.R. — Cancun City Council has formally requested that taxi drivers involved in last months threats against city bus drivers be reprimanded. City Council Secretary Jorge Aguilar Osorio says that more than a week ago, they sent a letter to the Quintana Roo Mobility Institute (Imoveqro) to remove the operating licenses of those involved.

He said the city made the request for drivers who were evidenced with videos disturbing public order and blocking the nighttime bus transport service on established routes.

“We hope that now Imoveqroo applies the regulation,” he said adding that the General Secretary of the Union Andrés Quintana Roo, Heriberto Núñez, has an opportunity to work together with authorities to bring order and guarantee the nighttime city service to users.

Osorio said the City Council provided video links to the drivers known to be involved in the disturbance that caused Cancun bus drivers to stop working past 10:30 p.m. due to threats.

He says that they continue to carry out operations at the main public transport stops to avoid new conflicts and so that users can choose the transportation service they want.

Last month, Cancun city bus drivers were being threatened by a group of Cancun city taxi drivers to stop providing the public service past 10:00 p.m. This forced residents, tourists and workers around the city to take the more expensive taxi option for their nighttime transport service.
