Spain: Maddened Madrid taxi drivers demand ridesharing regulation

Hundreds of taxi drivers marched through the streets of Madrid on Monday, calling on the regional and municipal governments to regulate licenses of private hire drivers, known in Spain as 'VTCs'.

The demonstration was organised by the 'Elite Taxi' and 'Caracol Taxi' associations.

Protesters rallied in front of Madrid's Regional Government at Puerta del Sol before marching towards the City Council building and the National Commission on Markets and Competition (CNMC) offices.

Some protesters claimed that although a royal decree was approved two months ago, allowing regional and municipal governments to regulate the activity of VTCs, little has been done to oversee the service.

'Elite Taxi' association president Sergio Vega, who joined the protest, said, "Because of you [politicians], the streets of Madrid are flooded with VTC vehicles, which are creating an absolutely unfair competition to taxis. You did not stop it in any way, and you treated taxis with disdain at every meeting."
