The market of taxi services in Ukraine needs to be reformed

05/ 11/ 2020
  Taxi reform has been actively discussed in Ukraine for the last few years, as the passenger market is currently overregulated and dysfunctional. Ukraine is almost the only country in the Eastern European region where the market for taxi services has not yet been liberalized and where there is no regulation of the activity of modern taxi applications services. The EBA Member companies support the introduction of simple and transparent rules for entering the market, including the abolition of licensing for domestic transportation of passengers by taxi and passenger cars to order. Instead, licensing can be replaced by a start-up statement and the inclusion of information in the Register of Taxi Car Carriers or custom-made cars. Such changes, according to experts of the Association, will create favorable conditions for the development of fair and transparent competition in the taxi market. Given this, the EBA expresses its support for the draft law of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine On Amendments to Certain Laws of Ukraine on Regulation of Domestic Transportation of Passengers by Taxi and Custom Cars, published on August 4 for public discussion. Regulating the market for domestic passenger services is an important step towards implementing European standards in the lives of Ukrainians. This will increase traffic safety and the level of responsibility of carriers, which, in turn, will have a positive impact on the quality of services. Besides, the proposed reform will increase the fiscal transparency of the taxi industry, ensure the legal status of drivers, and promote fair competition, said Tetiana Shyrochenko, EBA Committees Coordinator.
