Cancun taxi drivers prohibited from “traditional” New Year’s Eve double rate

Cancun, Q.R. — Taxis in Cancun who charge passengers the “traditional” doubled rate due to the holiday will be sanctioned says the Institute of Mobility of the state of Quintana Roo.

Taxi drivers in Cancun have been forewarned that the doubling of fees, which has been tolerated in the past, will not be tolerated this year. The advisement was handed out by the Institute of Mobility of the State of Quintana Roo (Imoveqroo) who informed all Cancun taxi drivers that there has not been an authorized fee increase and that current established rates apply.

The announcement was met with hostility on social media outlets as Cancun taxi drivers disagreed with the Institute’s notice who say those reported charging double will be sanctioned with a seven to 15-day suspension by the Andrés Quintana Roo Taxi Drivers Union.

The Trade Union of the Andrés Quintana Roo taxi drivers says that anyone overcharged can file their complaint by calling 998-1-55-47-35, 998-2-93-6267 and 6-89-11-66 and added that to file a complaint, it is vital to provide the taxi unit number, the fee charged and time of the service.
