Cammeo Drivers Blockaded by Split Taxi Drivers

Total Croatia News

Around 50 local taxi operators have blocked the parking lot of the Cammeo taxi service, due to start operations today in Split

Around 50 Split taxi drivers blockaded on Thursday morning, near the city cemetery Lovrinac, the parking lot of Cammeo vehicles that were due to begin offering services in Split on Thursday, Jutarnji List reported on November 17, 2016.

The first police report was made at 6:45am after which police units arrived at the scene.

“The situation is currently without incident. Police are on location, while the public will be informed in due time,” the police have stated.

Split taxi drivers peacefully protested in the beginning of August in the city centre, stating they will fight illegal taxi drivers until order is restored. There are 139 registered taxi drivers in Split, while in season that number triples.

Regional director of Cammeo Ivan Tomaš did not answer calls on Thursday morning. He announced his company would disclose on Thursday information on operations.

“These are not just Split taxi drivers, but others from the region as well. We will not move our vehicles until Cammeo explains how they intend to offer services in Split,” said Lovre Ćatipović from the Split taxi association.

Cammeo did not file for a taxi license and their vehicles do not bear the taxi sign. It is therefore believed they would offer services under the car and driver rental system.

Cammeo claims they have all necessary permits and are waiting for police to remove the protesters.

Comments by Split residents in the comment below the article side with Cammeo, labelling local Split taxi drivers as expensive, rude and careless.
