State’s new Mobility Law could be put into effect in a month

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — If there are no setbacks, the state’s new Mobility Law could be put into effect in one month. State Secretary Cristina Torres says as long as there are no changes to be made, the new regulations could become enforceable in about one month.

She said the new mobility law will include guidelines for the operation of Uber and other digital transportation platforms, as well as the regulation of motorcycle taxis and motorcycle delivery drivers.

Torres said that the State’s technical team is making the final adjustments to the regulations, including defining the maximum number of units that will be able to operate by digital platforms.

Work is also being done on the new Mobility Fund, which will be integrated with the collection of a percentage of the services provided by the digital transport platforms, and which will serve as subsidies to public transport operators so that they can meet the new requirements in terms of security cameras and taximeters.

Part of that fund will also be used to address mobility issues in general, Torres added.

For the time being, digital rideshare companies like Uber continue to operate “not illegally” in a state legal loophole.
