The motorcycle taxi service is not included in the Jalisco Mobility Law. Given the endorsement of the State Government, which will allow them offer transfers as long as they do not travel on primary roads, work in a certain polygon and the drivers are licensed and registered, Deputy Mónica Magaña, head of the Mobility Commission in the state Congress, said that adjustments are being sought to guarantee the safety of passengers.
“The motorcycle taxis that operate right now do not meet any (condition) and are a danger to drivers and users.”
For his part, Óscar Vásquez Llamas, member of the aforementioned Commission, supported regularization.
“We know that they are a problem and they are a solution: a problem due to the risk they represent for users (and) a solution to the need for citizens to move due to the inability of the State to provide the service. We bet on regulation”, commented the brunette.
On the subject, Susana de la Rosa, from the Future party, agreed on the need for regulation and to find a solution to the risks faced by those who use this type of transport because it is their only alternative.
“It is not possible to pretend to cover up the problem by prohibiting. It has to be regulated within the framework of the new Mobility Law to protect users and give them decent and quality public transport”, she emphasized.
