Taxi uproar in Cayo

Posted: Thursday, May 25, 2017. 2:03 pm CST.


By BBN Staff: A group of concerned and upset taxi men contacted BBN today to share their discontent with the San Ignacio/ Santa Elena Town Council.

According to the men, the Mayor of the Twin Towns, Earl Trapp is charging all the Cayo taxi operators a trade license. The license costs $200 and the mayor reportedly promised the men that he will cease Benque taxi operators from operating in Cayo.

The men say that the Benque taxi operators are still operating in the area and the mayor has not done anything to cease it.

They also shared with us that the taxi operators parking spaces are being blocked with cones in some areas of the town everyday from 7am to 8pm.

One of the operators took pictures as seen above and told BBN that he believes that the traffic men are stopping them from working and since they are now paying a trade license, they should be allowed to work in all the areas they worked before.

The taxi operators are also upset because they now need to park by the Macal River which is a walking distance away from midtown and operators claim that passengers do not want to walk that far to catch a taxi.
