AMMAN —Al Ghad— Taxi drivers and owners held a stand in protest Tuesday morning, in Tabarbour, Amman, against what they referred to as the “chaos in the sector”, and blamed the Land Transport Regulatory Commission (TTF) for it.

The protests featured demands to address “deformities and injustices” in the labour and social security inclusion regulations, modify transportation fares and rates, and prohibiting the ‘illegal’ operation of unlicensed transportations.

Notably, there are now nearly 16,000 taxi vehicles operation around Jordan, and almost 10,000 public transportation buses and ‘white cabs’, of which 11,500 taxis, nearly 4,000 white cabs, and 6,000 mid-size buses operate within the Capital’s vicinity.
