Geneva taxis want more rights to use bus lanes

National News // Sept. 28, 2017

The law could be changed in Geneva to allow taxis to use bus lanes even when they’re empty. Currently taxis are only allowed to use the lanes when carrying a customer. But the taxi companies complain they’re losing business as it takes too long for them to get to a fare.

The local party, MCG, has tabled a bill in the cantonal parliament to change the law.

Traditional taxis are under pressure because of the ride sharing app Uber.

Bus lanes take up 30% of roads in the canton and taxi drivers pay CHF 1,400 a year for their licence.
