Santiago del Teide’s campaign to clamp down on cowboy taxis was stepped up yesterday with the handing over of official ID cards to local licensed taxis.

The drivers also received a new rule book compiled by the local council and a revised street map. A small number of new permits were issued to new taxis. The council says that the cards will help identify bona fide drivers on the spot and should deter the cowboys.

The Santiago del Teide council has just received its 2nd taxi especially designed for people with reduced mobility.  Of the 34 taxis licensed in Santiago del Teide, these 2 will help solve the continuous demand for more adaptable vehicles.
