Bus drivers vowed Tuesday to begin a naitonwide strike later this week in protest against a bill that redefines taxis as a mode of mass transit and offers them compensation for losses.
The debate over whether taxis are public transportation means heated up after a parliamentary committee last week unanimously passed the bill that effectively categorized taxis as a mode of mass transit.
The bill has yet to be approved by a full parliamentary session.
Expressing immediate opposition to the move, the association of the country’s 17 bus operators decided to launch a strike on Thursday to block the passage of the bill.
Watching how this develops. Good luck getting to work tomorrow, at any rate.
