Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – A new taxi service is about to be launched in Playa del Carmen.
Taxi Rosa, which is part of the Lázaro Cárdenas del Río union, announced the creation of the new service group which is a taxi service provided by women for women. It is also a move to recognize gender equality in the field says Jesús Pastor Martín Medina, secretary of the taxi union.
The announcement was made during the Playanese Women’s Breakfast by María del Carmen Loría de Martín.
“We have many women taxi drivers,” she said. “In fact, there is already the first group of 30 well coordinated women who are ready to provide the service of Taxi Rosa so that women who want to feel safe can ask for this service.”
The new taxi program is expected to take around one month to complete its administrative legalities before heading to the streets.
