Experts blame the new driver registration system.
The interregional trade union & # 8220;Taxi Driver & #8221; warned the Moscow authorities that the planned introduction of the CIS “Art” (Integrated information system “Taxi Work Analytics”) in the city and region is capable of provoking a collapse in the market ”.
It is known that the organization consists of two thousand drivers and taxi companies.
According to Forbes, the head of the trade union Yaroslav Shcherbinin sent a letter about this to the prime minister Mikhail Mishustin, the head of Roskonadzor Andrey Lipov and the Ministry of Transport Vitaly Saveliev, as well as to the mayor of the capital Sergey Sobyanin.
The CIS will have to monitor the work of taxi drivers, their compliance with the rest schedule, regular medical examinations, paperwork, payment of fines and the absence of criminal records for serious crimes.
Those who ignore the CIS checks will not be allowed to work in the capital and the Moscow region from August 1, and they will not be able to turn on through aggregators.
According to Sherbinin and the experts of the trade union, taxi companies will need significant financial injections, and there will be fewer drivers, because not everyone will be able to overcome the difficulties and barriers of registration in the CIS. Finally, due to the revision of the drivers ‘ work schedule, their earnings will fall.
The trade union suggests not to introduce the system without checking its operation in the pilot mode. This will allow market participants to connect to the CIS gradually.
Also, & #8220;The taxi driver & #8221; suggests at the initial stage to freeze the system of fines for “improper” data transfer to the CIS.
At the same time, the media reports that the system will be launched in 10 days, but many of the taxi drivers have still not been able to connect to the CIS, although they have been trying to do this for two weeks in a row.
Earlier, Topnews wrote that artists Nikolai Baskov and Igor Matvienko reported the departure of many colleagues and participants of the show market in a taxi during the pandemic.
This is how they reacted to the cancellation of mass events that provoked serious financial losses.
