Taxi drivers in Nice protest

Taxi drivers in Nice protest - Taxis drivers in Nice have disrupted traffic this morning in protest against the partnership signed between the town hall and the transport car company Uber.  The Ligne d’Azur bus network announced the partnership on Wednesday which will see holders of annual passes able to hail an Uber taxi after 8pm for a fixed fare of six euro. The fare will apply on journeys to or from certain tram stations, or on one of the 17 bus routes with no evening service. Christophe Charpentier, president of the union of taxis said the agreement was "unfair and meant unacceptable competition" calling for the immediate suspension of the partnership.
